Mt Lord, 

The &your and condescension which I experienced from 
your Lordship while you so ably presided over the united 
diocese of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross, — the readiness with which 
you listened to my plans for publishing these records,«-and 
the aid you afforded me by giving me access to the Visitation 
Books and other documents in the registries of Cork and 
Cloyne, — call for some acknowledgment on my part 

I therefore beg your Lordship to receive this dedication of 
a work which you have in some degree yourself encouraged, 
as a slight token of my gratitude for your kindness and admi- 
ration of the high qualities which distinguish you as a scholar, 
an author, and a divine. 

But I am warned not further to express my sentiments or 
attempt your praise by the words employed by a learned man 
in reference to a &mous writer and speaker of old. '* Nemo 
ilium satis ex merito laudare possit, aut de illo digne dicere, 
nisi qui illi in dicendo par sit aut similis.*^ I am too conscious 
of my inferiority to become your panegyrist ; and, therefore, 
I content myself with being 

Tour Lordship's 

Humble and obliged Servant, 

W. Mazisre Bradt, i>.i>.

The Ecclesiastical Records of Ireland have recently, in some 
degree, attracted the notice of the learned. Dr. Reeves, Db. 
Todd, Mr, E. P. Shirley, the late Dean Butler, the Rev. 
J. C. Crosthwaite, Mr. R. Caulfield, and others, have 
severally published works illustrative of the history of the 
Church, and have rescued many interesting and valuable 
documents from oblivion and decay. The succession of all 
Bishops and Cathedral Dignitaries in Ireland from ancient to 
modern times has also been recorded in a permanent form 
by Archdeacon Henry Cotton, in his "Fasti EcclesiaB 

But no attempt has yet been made (except a few meagre 
lists of Incumbents in Mason's " Parochial Survey") to trace the 
Parochial Clergy of Ireland from the period of the Reforma- 
tion to the present time, or to extract from her own records 
the history of the Church. 

Sad havoc among the materials for such a work was occa- 
sioned by the disturbances of 1641 and 1688, and since then 
the ignorance and carelessness of their custodians caused the 
destruction or loss of many a Parish Register and Visitation 
Book, which the wars had spared. Nor is it easy always to 
search the Diocesan Registries. Inquirers, armed with the 
permission of the Bishop, may yet be baffled by surly officials, 
or disconcerted by the want of proper catalogues and indexes, 
or driven away by dust and dirt before the musty and ill- 
scented documents be fully examined; besides, for the most 
part, the Visitation Books afford little information, save the 
names of the clergy, and their absence or attendance in parti- 
cular years ; the Books of Titles are very defective, and the 


Parish Registers are not, in general, of date more ancient than 
the latter part of the past century. The wills and marriage 
licences have, perhaps, been somewhat better attended to, for 
obvious reasons ; and from them, as also from the Chapter Books 
of the Cathedrals, much valuable matter may be extracted. 
The Act-Books of the Episcopal Courts contain some items of 
intelligence respecting the clergy not of an agreeable nature, 
which may be gleaned by those who have patience to wade 
through a mass of rapidly-written lawyers' Latin, from fre- 
quent abbreviations always difficult, and sometimes impos- 
sible, to decipher. 

More easy of access, though not easier to read, are the First 
Fruit records, or returns of spiritual promotions made by the 
Bishops to the Barons of the Exchequer, and now preserved 
in the Custom-house, Dublin, under the able care of Mr. 
Harding. Of these, as well as of the Regal Visitation Books 
now in the libraries of Dublin University and of the Royal 
Irish Academy, an accurate description has been furnished by 
Archdeacon Cotton, who has likewise, in the preface to his 
*' Fasti," given a useful account of the ** Liber Munerum 
Hiberniae," a book which contains, besides various other mat- 
ters, a list of presentations made by the Crown to benefices in 

I now proceed to explain the plan which I have adopted in 
this work, which, it will be remembered, embraces only the 
clergy and parishes of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross. 

With regard to the clergy ; — I have given their succession 
to benefices, as far as it is now possible to trace them, with 
the dates of their admission or institution, specifying in every 
case the source from which the information has been derived. 
In very many parishes the succession of Incumbents appears 
to be complete for more than two centuries and a-half. The 
parentage, birth-place, college-matriculation, and university 
degree of the clergyman, have been stated in numerous in- 
stances, as well as his ordination and clerical appointments, 
his marriage, issue, and death. The published works and the 
charitable bequests of the clergy have been duly recorded, and 


in some cases brief genealogical accounts have been compiled. 
In order to show at a glance the clerical career of each cler- 
gyman, I have set down in one place, usually the last prefer- 
ment which he held, all that I have collected concerning him 
from various sources ; but as I had nothing except similarity 
of name and agreement of date to guide me in noting his pre- 
ferments in other dioceses^ I have been unable to secure abso- 
lute certainty in this respect. I must also warn the reader 
that I have purposely abstained from any effort after unifor- 
mity in the spelling of names, and have frequently written the 
name of the same person differently in the same page, just as 
my authorities gave it. I have not altered the Latinity luid 
grammar of the ancient documents, nor have I suppressed a 
single fiict therein recorded from any wish to conceal what 
might be judged discreditable to the Church. 

With regard to the parishes ; — ^I have extracted all the infor- 
mation I could concerning them from a variety of sources. Their 
ancient names, their value, their population, their unions, the 
state of their churches, the services celebrated, the particulars 
of glebe-houses and lands, the amount of rentcharge and com- 
position for tithes — all these matters have been faithfully ex- 
tracted from the proper authorities, both ancient and modem. 
I have transferred to my pages the whole of the valuable Visi- 
tation Books of 1591, of 1615, of 1634, of 1639, and of 1669. 
The Diocesan Returns, made in 1693, agreeably to Mr. 
Secretary Aldworth's letter from the Council, have been 
obtained, through Dr. Reeves, from Armagh Registry by 
the kind permission of His Grace the Lord Prihate, and 
are now printed, those for Cork separately, those for Cloyne 
and Ross under their respective parishes. The whole 
of Bishop Dive Dowkes' Tour through the dioceses of 
Cork and Ross in 1699 and following years, has also been 
incorporated into this work, as well as tiie Parliamentary re- 
turns printed about 1807 and 1837. The accounts of the 
several parishes of the diocese in 1860 have been furnished 
partly by the clergy themselves, in answer to printed queries 
sent to every Incumbent, partly by other trusted correspond- 


ents, and in part has been the result of my own personal 
observation and inquiries. The amount of tithe-rentcfaarge 
may sometimes be a little under or over stated, by reason of 
the shifting value of the corn averages; but, on the whole, 
these statistics will be found sufficiently correct for all public 

In a publication like this it is evident that no amount of 
care can exclude errors and omissions. I shall thankfully 
receive notices of both from any of my readers, and I shall 
print corrections and additions along with the concluding por- 
tion of this work. 

It now becomes my pleasing task to offer my cordial thanks 
to those persons who have aided me in this laborious and ex- 
pensive undertaking. I need not, of course, mention, what 
is now so well known, that the visiter to the Bodleian at 
Oxford, the Museum, State Paper Office, &c., in London, 
the Libraries of Trinity College, and of the Royal Irish 
Academy, in Dublin, will meet with civility and attention, 
I will merely say, that in my case I was assisted most mate- 
rially, and was spared much time and labour, by the unex* 
pected personal kindness which I met with in my researches. 
To the Rev. Dr. Todd, s.f.t.c.d., my thanks are especially 
due, for his help in considting various manuscripts ; as well as 
to Sir Thomas Phillipps, fiaronet, f.r.s., of Middle-hill, 
Worcestershire, for the opportunity which he gave me of 
examining several MSS* relating to Ireland. Sir Bernard 
B0RKE, Ulster, afforded me access to the valuable records in 
his department, and obliged me with particular facilities. 
The Lords of the Treasury also gave me liberty to consult, 
free of charge, certain documents in the Dublin offices under 
their control. 

I have to thank the present Bishop of Killaloe, William 
FiTZOBRAXD, lately L<»rd Bishop of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross, 
for admission to the registries of the diocese, as aJso for liberty 
to make extracts from the valuable MSS. of Bishop Bennet 
Without his aid and approval I should not have been able to 
compile these records. 



The Veitebable S. M. Kyle, v.o., Abchbeacon of Cobk, 
the Venebable Robebt Maunsell Eyaj^b, Abchdeacon of 
Cloyne, the Yenebable Alsxandeb Stuabt, Abchdeacon 
of Ross, and the Rey. W. Rogebs, Registrar of Cloyne, haYe 
kindly, from time to time, sent me Yarious items of informa- 

I am indebted to Da. Gbayes, of Brigowne, for the oppor- 
tunity of making extracts from a copy of the Chapter Book of 
Cloyne, which was written by Rey. James Hingston, a.m., 
and by him left among the Parish Records of Brigowne. 
This copy of Cloyne Chapter Book was particularly serYice- 
able, as it so happened that, from causes not necessary to 
specify, I could not obtain access to the original Chapter 
Books either of Cork, or Cloyne, or Ross. 

I am also indebted to John Ribton Gabstin, esq., a.m., 
M.B.I.A., for his assistance on scYcral occasions during the 
progress of this work. 

Mr. W. B. Kelly, Bookseller, of 8, Grafton-street, Dublin, 
Yery kindly placed at my disposal for examination the manu- 
script papers of the late James Fbedebick Febguson, esq., 
of the Exchequer Record Office, Dublin, which contain most 
Yaluable information, chiefly relating to ecclesiastical affairs, 
such as advowsons, impropriations, and the property of monas- 
teries and other religious foundations in Ireland. 

To my Yery numerous correspondents, whose names are 
not mentioned for obYious reasons, I am indebted for the 
courtesy and patience with which my genealogical inquiries 
haYe been, in most cases, entertained. 

It would be unjust, howcYer, not to offer my most grateful 
thanks to the following gentlemen : the Rey. Aubbet Towns- 
end, B.D., of Westop-super-Mare; John Nicholas Cbofts 
Atkins Dayis, f.b.c.s.i., m.b.c.s.l., Deputy Inspector-Gene- 
ral of Army Hospitals, &c., of 20, Waterloo-road, Dublin ; 
the Rey. Samuel Hayman, of Ardnegihy, Cork; Denis 
O'Callaghan Fisheb, esq., of Brunswick-street, Dublin ; and 
RiGHABD Caulfield, b.a , F.S.A., CoiTesp. Mem. Soc. Antiq., 
Normandy, &c., &c., of Cork. They haYe been ever ready 



to afford me the aid of their sympathy, counsel, and know* 
ledge. They have contributed largely of their genealogical 
and antiquarian lore to these pages, and on- every occasion 
have shown unselfishness and liberality in imparting the most 
valuable information.

Bishop Palliser's Remarks on the State of the Diocese of 
Clotne, a.d. .1694, with his Plan for Unions of Parishes.* 

[^ This is tbe first sheet of the Return, and is entirely in Bishop 

Palliser's handwriting." — W. E.] 

The Right Honourable the Lords Justices of this kingdom having 
been graciously pleased to allow me to take mine own time in re- 
turning to their Lordships the present state of the diocese of Olujn, 
I have been the more diligent in drawing a full representation of 
the same, and with much ado at length, by gentle means (and I was ^ 
unwilling to use any other), have generally prevailed on the clergy 
(a very few excepted), to give in the present value of their several 
livings. I suspect I may be guilty of mistakes in some particulars, 
being a perfect stranger in this diocese (country), till abont nine 
months ago ; but I have endeavoured to be exact, and believe the 
main substance of the following account to be very true, and for 
clearing some particulars which may seem liable to exception, I 
humbly desire these few things may be noted. 

1. That many livings of this diocese being very mean, there's a 
necessity of conferring four or five on one person, to afford him 
but a very ordinary subsistence. But if the numerous impropri- 
ations in this diocese were restored to the Church, this incon- 
venience might be in a great measure remedied. 

2. That the present poverty of the people is the great reason why 
divers churches in this diocese are not rebuilt and repaired ; but if 
it please God to continue peace in this country, I doubt not but in a 
few yean most of the churches that are fallen to ruin, necessary to 
be rebuilt and repaired, will be made fit for divine service. 

3. That the clergy in giving in the present value of their livings 
have made deductions for what they yearly pay out of them, which 
IS a considerable sum. And the present value of many livings 
amounts not near to what it was before the late war, much land 
still lying waste, several parts of this diocese being much infested 
by rapparees. 

4. That there has been a great neglect in this diocese of making 
unions of contiguous livings before the expiration of the Act of 
Parliament in King Charles II.'s time for that effect. But I have 
at the end of this paper drawn a scheme of convenient unions, which 
it may be fit to consider when it shall please their gracious Majes- 
ties, their Parliament, to take this matter into consideration. It 

• Thi« paper, as also " The State of the Diocese of Cloyne,'' incorporated 
into the body of this work, was procured through the kindness of I)r Keeves, 
and was copied from the original in Armagh Registry, by Edward Rogers, 


would be a great service done to this church to redress that ecclesi- 
astical grieranoe, that one clerygman should possess several benefices 
with cure in the same diocese, which are so far from being contigu- 
ous that they are sometimes at ten or twenty miles distant. 

5. That the Bishop of Oloyn, in February last, received a letter 
from Secretary Aldworth, by order of the Lords Justioes, that he 
should give no disturbance to Mr. William Jephson, Dean of Lismore, 
as to those livings he holds in this diocese, upon occasion of his ab- 
sence, now near a whole year in England. Unto which order the 
Bishop hath paid that dutiful respect which became him, but humbly 
tenders the truth of the case to their Lordships* consideration, that 
the said William Jephson has several livings in other dioceses to the 
ralue of near £300 a-year, and yet resides upon none of them ; and 
that above three years ago he obtained a patent for some consider* 
able benefices with cure in this diocese, named Ardagh and Clonpriest, 
and yet to this day never came to the Bishop to take institution 
and induction upon his patent, so that these livings are still in law 
void ; and it is in the power of the Chief Governors to give them 
unto them that will personally serve the cure, and not run away 
with the entire profit of these livings, and do nothing for it, as Mr. 
William Jephson, for above these three years, has done. Moreover, he 
is as yet no actual Chaplain to any regiment, but (as the Bishop is 
well informed), only designed to be a Chaplain to Colonel Colthorpe's 
regiment, which is to be raised here in Ireland. It is certainly no 
slender abuse in the church, for a man who never did nor ever is 
likely to do any service to the church to run away with the profit 
of two considerable livings upon a bare presentation which gives 
no legal title ; and when he is required by the Bishop to come out 
of England (which he is not so sick but he might very easily do) 
and be admitted into those livings, pursuant to his patent, to pre- 
vent the Bishop's sequestration, instead of complying with the 
Bishop's most just order, he gets an injunction from the Govern* 
ment, upon a false suggestion, to tie up the Bishop's hands, that he 
cannot handle such a man as he deserves. 

6. That the two livings of Ardagh and Clonpriest (which Dean 
William Jephson has had a patent for above these three years, yet 
hitherto has neglected to be inducted, and instituted into them) 
ought, in all reason, to be otherwise disposed of, Ardagh to go along 
with the curacy of Youghall, and Clonpriest with the deanery of 
Cloyne, as will appear by the following state of them both. 

The 8tatb of the Rbctobt of Abdagh, yearly value about 24 
pounds, now legally void in the King's presentation. 

The rectory of Ardagh was formerly a member of the Collegiate 
Church of Youghall, being contiguous thereunto, until, upon the disi- 
solution of that college, it was divided from it, with the rest of the 
parishes thereunto belonging ; and though all the parishes thereby 
came to be in the Ring's presentation, yet it was still thought fit that 

€ 2 

zxxvi BISHOP palliser's remarks on clotne. 

the parish of Ardagh should be giyen to the Curate of Youghall (whose 
cure is yeiy great, much the greatest in the diocese, and his mainte- 
nance otherwise inconsiderable), and by him it was constantly en- 
joyed in a continued succession of Curates from this said dissolution 
unto the year 1672, or thereabouts, when falling void upon the ces- 
sion of the then Incumbent, and the succeeding Curate of Youghal) 
being negligent in taking out the King's presentation to it, Mr. 
William Fitzgerald, then Dean of Cloyn, passeil his Majesty's patent 
for it ; thereupon was instituted, inducted into it, continued ever 
since in the possession thereof, until he was promoted to the bishop- 
rick of Clonfert, by which promotion it became vacant again, and 
so continues to this very day, Mr. William Jephson, Dean of Lis- 
more, having only a bare presentation thereunto. The inhabitants 
of the parish of Ardagh all go to divine service in the Church of 
Youghall, so that nothing in all the diocese of Cloyn is so proper 
to be perpetually united to the cure of Youghall, if a vicarage were 
endowed there, nor in the interim so convenient to be given to the 
Curate of Youghall, for his maintenance in that great cure ; all the 
maintenance he at present has for serving that cure being given 
him by the Bishop out of the revenue of the bishoprick, which is 
itself so small that ^tis scarce able to support a Bishop according to 
the dignity of his place and station. Upon these considerations, 
in all humility offer'd to the Government, the Bishop of Cloyn 
earnestly begs that the Lords Justices would be pleased to grant 
this rectory of Ardagh, now legally void, and in their disposal, to 
the present Curate of Youghall, Mr. Mathew Jones, for his better 
maintenance in discharging much the greatest cure in the whole 
diocese of Cloyn, especially the Curates of Youghall having ever 
enjoyed the said rectory of Ardagh by the favour of the Government, 
until of late years it was wrested from them. 

The Stats of the Reotory of Clonpriest, usurped also by Dean 
William Jephson, but legally void in the Ring*8 presentation. 

The rectory of Clonpriest, in the diocese of Cloyn, no slender 
cure, worth about 70 pounds, yearly, has, for above three score years, 
gone along with the deanery of Cloyn (the deanery is a very incon- 
siderable Uiing without it); but filing void by the promotion of the 
late Dean of Cloyn, Mr. William Fitzgerald, to the bishoprick of 
Clonfert, Mr. William Jephson by subtile artifice pass'd a patent 
for it, wrested it from the deanery, when his Majesty really intended 
it for the present Dean of Cloyn, Mr. Henry Scardeville, Chaplain 
to Duke 8chomberg ; but Mr. William Jephson having only a bare 
presentation to the rectory of Clonpriest, and hitherto neglecting to 
be by the Bishop instituted and inducted thereunto, it is still void 
in law, and ought, in great reason, by the gracious pleasure of the 
Government to be reannexed to the deanery of Cloyn (to which it 
long appertained), to render it somewhat considerable.

1679. (Fo. 23.) March 17. We find and present that there ought

that a convenient place be agreed on between the Bishop of 
Corke and city of Oorke for the same, and that the city and 
liberties of Oorke are in the diocess of Oorke, and therefore 
are obliged to contribute to the bnilding the said school. 
We therefore find and present that one hundred pounds be 
raised on that part of the diocess of Oorke which lies within 
the county of Oorke, and the summe collected be paid to 
Alexander Piggot, esq., &c., provided alwais that the said 
Figgott shall not issue warrants for the collection of the same,

under their seal, convey to the Rt. Rev. the Bishop of the 
diocess the ground pitched on for the said school^ as also

which, if they shall fail of doing, <bc., the said Figgot shall desist 
from issueing out the warrant aforesaid.

lor moneys exceeding 4</. per plowland, his usual fees of 
2<. 6(2. for every warrant issued to the several baronies in the 
said county. Warrants for money for prisoners to be signed 
by him rrfttis. 

1680. (26.) We desire the Bishop of the diocess and the High

(27.) Sixty pounds to be raised out of that part of the 
county of Oorke that lies in the diocese of Oorke, for the 


erecting of a school, according to act of parliament, to be ap- 
plotted according to the deficiency of the year's valae. 

The Bishop of Oorke, Will. Mead, esq., &c., are made over-

Peter Murragh was formerly, upon a Commission of Oyer 
and Terminer, tried for staying in the kingdom, contrary to 
the Act for banishing the Titular Archbishops, &c. 

He was charged with being Vicar-Genend of Corke. The 


evidence against him not being strong enough for his convic- 
tion, he was discharged. This happened about three years 

Some months ago Peter Mnrrogh, by vertue of a warrant, 
with a mittimus contained in it from Alaerman Newinham, was 
seized by a Constable in Corke, and committed to the city gaol, 
as P<^ish Yicar-General of Oorke.

Alderman Newinham that he had been formerly Yicar-General 
of Oorke, and that this was the ground of his commitment. 
He owned also he was Yicar-General to the Constable.

There are three books of the county Corke. In the custody of 
the Treasurer of the county of Corke, is (1) a large parchment 
book, in folio, intituled — '' A Survey of the county of Corke, ab- 
stracted out of the Survey remaining upon record in the Surveyor- 
Generars Office, subscribed by Vin. Gookin, Surveyor-General." 
This seems to be the oldest and most unperfect of the three books 
of Survey in the said Treasurer's hands. It seems to be abstracted 
out of the Survey of only the forfeited lands taken in CromwelPs 

2. A large book of maps, describing the nnforfeited lands in the 
county of Corke. Two or three parishes are usually described in 
one map. On the opposite side to the map, are in several oolumns 
set down, the proprietors* names, denominations of the lands, quantity 



of acres by admeasurement, lands profitable, and lands unprofitable. 
On the other side is a transcript of the first page of this book. This 
admeasurement was made ann. 1659. 

3. A paper book, in folio, which contains a description of all the 
lands forfeited and unforfeited in the county of Corke, without 
maps. As for the unforfeited lands, it agrees for the most part with 
the parchment book aforesaid, so that it does in a manner contain 
both the above said books. On the third page of this paper is a 
transcript of the first page of this book. 

P&rt of this book contains the admeasurement made by a resolve 
of the Commissioners of Assessment for the county of Corke, 
bearing date Sept. 6, 1659. 

An Index of the Baronies' Names, and Quantities of Acres 
in each of them, is in the Book (No. 2) of Maps of Unfor- 
feited Lands.

'* Letter to the Lord Archbishop of Cashel concerning the Guardian 

of the Spiritualtyes." Not. 13, '94. 

My Lord — As to the Queeres, my present thoughts upon them 
are these — ^that the Archbishop is Guardian of the Spiritualties in 
the vacancy of the Bishoprics in his province ; this the authorities 

* In two paroelB. 


cited bj Godolphin seem to prove ; unless tbere be some particular 
constitution to the contrary. [Godolpb., Abridge., p. 41 — Sed Queere.] 
And, besides, T think I have heard that it is so in the province of 
Ardmagh, and I do believe it is so in this province, but I have not 
time now to enquire particularly into it. I suppose he has by some 
act acknowledged you to be Guardian of the Spiritualties. 

As to the second. — I suppose the power of the Vicar-General 
ceases upon the vacancy of the Bishopric — so says Barbosa de jure 
ecclesi., de vicar., et coadju. epi. No. 44 ; and I know, that Sir 
John Topham, upon the vacancy of the See of Dublin, takes out a 
new commission from the Beans and Chapters of Ghristchurch and 
St Patrick's, as Guardians of the Spiritualties, and besides a Vicar- 
General has very rarely the power of institution granted to him in 
his commission. 

As to the third. — I suppose he may be cited and censured in your 
court, and the institution be declared null unless there be some par- 
ticular constitution or prescription in the diocese of Cloyne, which 
makes the Deane and Chapter Guardian of the Spiritualties, and 
that he acted by virtue of a commission from them ; and I dou*t 
know what other court can properly take cognizance of it. [6th 
Dec., de off. vie. c. p. Amana Ecclesia.] 

As to the last — I suppose there lyes no appeal from Cashel to 
the Primate, that provence being no way subordinate to the See of 
Ardmagh, the Primate having no authority but in his own province, 
unless it be in wills and faculties for as much as I know of the 
matter, so that if there be any appeal it must be to the King in 

Tourpredecessor, Marsh, told me, that in the last vacancy of the 
See of ETillalloo, he granted a commission for the administration of 
the Spiritualties. The Primate was Guardian of the Spiritualties 
when Dromore was last vacant. 

If neither the Archbishop of Cashel nor the Dean and Chapter 
shew any precedents nor prescription, the question will then be — 
to whom of common right the Guardianship of the Spiritualties 
does belong ? The books generally say, that the Dean and Chapter, 
of common right, are Guardians of the Spiritualties — sede vacante, 
custodia spiritualium et temporalium de jure communi pertinet ad 
capitulum. [Lyndwood.] 

The lawyers say the common law of England is the same with 
the common law of Ireland. 

When there is a controversy between a Bishop and Archbishop 
concerning jurisdiction, the King is to declare their bounds. [Godolp., 
p. 18.] 

The Archbishop may not exercise his jurisdiction over the sub- 
jects of his suffragan but in certain cases. Hostiensis enumerates 
twenty-one cases. [Godolp., p. 19.] 

The King's letter [is necessary] to stop any patent ; so that, I 
suppose, your patent will remain of force. 


But the case of the institution is not altered, but is voyd now if it 
was 60 before ; and the person that instituted maj be proceeded 
against for meddling with a thine that he had no riffht to meddle in. 

The persons that had grants of the lirings hare been deky'd, it 
seems, so long, that there has been opportunity given to defeat 
their grants. 

Stat, concerning citations out of the diocese— -Archiep. potest 
ezcommunicare Vicarium Epi., si deliquit circa officinm commissum 
— si peccaret in iis quie sunt jurisdictionis. [Barbossa de archiepis. 
sen metrop' no. 30.]

Thomas Philip Le Fann was ordained deacon on 30th April, 
1809, by Bp. of Clonfert ; and priest on 16th September, 1810 
by the same Bishop. He was appointed Assistant Chap- 
lain of the Lying-in Hospital, Dublin, in 1809, and was after- 
wards one of the Curates of St. Mary's, Dublin, which lab<^ 
rious post he continued to occupy until 1815, when he was 
selected by Lord Whitworth, the Lord Lieutenant, as Chaplain 
of the Royal Hibernian School in the Phceniz Park. In 1817 
he was promoted to the Rectory of Ardnegihy, and in Novem- 
ber, 1823, to that of Abingdon, Emly dioc. He was made 
Dean of Emly in 1826, but retaining Abingdon. He died on 
24th June, 1845, and was buried at Abingdon. His talents as 
a preacher were of a high order, and he was of refined manners 
and cultirated mind. His amiability endeared him to his 
friends, and his benerolence to the poor. He was A.M. and 
LL.D. of T.O.D. 

He was the representative of a noble Huguenot family of Nor- 
mandy, possessing in that province, and chiefly in the genera- 
lit^ of Caen, many estates, among which were Mondeville, 
Sequeville, Cresserou, &o. The certificate of Noblesse, offi- 
cially signed by Guy Chamillart, bearing date 1671, and now 
in possession of J. S. Le Fanu, esq., of Merrion-square, Dublin, 
proves their nobility by charter to the year 1595. 

On the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, they were deprived 
of their estates ; but having relatives of influence in the Court 
of Louis XIV., they were permitted to leave France with their 
personal property, without molestation. Two members of this 
family, John Le Fanu de SequeviUe, and Charles Le Fanu de 
Cresseron, held cavalry commissions in the army of William 
III. Charles was upon the King's stafi^, a brave and excellent 
officer, and distinguished by being presented from William's 
hand with his portrait. He afterwards served as major of 
dragoons under Marlborough. Early in the last century Wil- 
liam Le Fanu was the sole representative of this family. He 
married Henrietta Raboteau de Pnggibaut^ the only surviving 
daughter of a Huguenot fiftmily, also noble. Her escape from 
France, when still a child, was accomplished under circum- 
stances of romantic danger, and by the aid and contrivance of 
a Roman Catholic uncle, who held a considerable post in the 
Court of France. Of this marriage there were issue several 
children, sons, who, with the exception of Joseph, all entered 
the army or the church. 

Joseph held the office of Clerk of the Coast in Ireland, and 
was the eldest of these sons who died leaving issue ; by his 
first marriage to Anne Franklin, he had one son only, William 
Le Fann, csuled to the Irish Bar, who died unmarried in 1817, 
and is very honourably recorded in Warburton's History of the 
City of Dublin. 


■ ■ 

Joseph Le Fan a, married secondly, Alicia, daughter of Thomas 
Sheridan, and sister of the Bight Honourable Bichard Briosley 
Sheridan. Of this marriage there were three children, who, 
except the eldest, Thomas Philip Le Fan a, the subject of this 
notice, died unmarried. His (Joseph's) brother, Captain Henry 
Le Fanu, of Leamington, co. Warwick, married Elizabeth, the 
only other sister of B. B. Sheridan. 

Dean Thomas Philip Le Fanu, married, in 1812, Emma 
Lncretia, daughter of the Ber. William Bobbin, and 
D.D., Bector of Finghiss and of St. Mary's, Dublin (by his 
wife Catherine, youngest daughter of Bobert Coote, esq., of 
Ash-hill, CO. Limerick, and aunt of Sir Charles Coote, of 
Ballyfin, bart.) Of this marriage there were three children, 
Catherine Frances, who died unm. ; Joseph Sheridan, barrister,

(Dean Hudson) enclosed these lands in his demesne, and the 
Incumbent of Ardnegihy was thus deprived of a site on which 
he had arranged to build a glebe-house, with the help of a loan 
from Board of First Fruits of £900. Incumbent resides at

The pen of the Bey. Samuel Hayman, during the interyals 
of parochial duty in the important parishes where he laboured

Maffcuine, the Chrigtian Examiner, the Oentleman^s Maganne, 
and the Patrician; of which latter work the fifth yolume was

1699. No church. Many Protestants, who go to BallimarteL 
The inhabitants made a proposal for building a church in this 
parish. [V.B. 1699, D.D.] 

^'1699. Angust 18. Ballinebuiy, upon the rirer half way 
betwixt Corke and Einsale; the church ruinous; the walls 
were built without lime. Major Bigg's monument there : this 
church is conreniently situated for several parishes." 

*^ Sept., 1700. I saw Ballinebnry church ; Was rebuilt this 
last summer with stone and clay, and plaister'd within 
and slated, but not glaz'd; they were about finishing of 
it. This church was rebuilt by a voluntary contribution of 
the parishioners. I ^ve £5 towards it It is about 30 foot 
long, and 18 broad. It stands on the south of the river Buiy, 
at about 200 yards distance from it." 

" Sept. 28, 1700. Saw Binmahon Church, on the south of the 
river Lee, a mile and a-half below Oorke. The church stood 
about 200 vards distant from the village called Ballintemple, 
upon the rising around. The walls of the church are almost 
quite ruinous, and the bounds of the church-yard are hardly dis- 
cernible. BaUintemple is one plowland in the parish of Bin< 
mahon. All the tythes of this parish belonff to the (economy 
of St. Barry's, worth about £30 per an. The lands of this 
parish belong to Mr. Coppinger, Mr. Boch, Major Clayton. 
Mr. Coppinger forfeited, in the late rebeUion, his interest, 
being two plowlands. Mr. Synge, as Prebendary of Christ 
Church, has one plowland, where the black rock is, in this 
parish, set for about £30 per an. The people of this parish go 
to Divine Service at St. Barry's, Corke. Captn. Hayes, 
Hammond (Quaker), at Dundanion, live in this parish — all the 
rest are Papists. Coleman is Popish priest of this parish, and 
all St. Barry's parish ; his mass-house is near the Bed Abby ; 
be has been here three or four years ; one Dooly, a priest, 
assists him." 

^'Oct 1700.1 saw BarnBhely church, which was built with 
stone, lime, and clay. The^ walls are above half down. It 
was about 28 foot long, and 17 broad. The bounds of the 
church-yard are hardly discernible. There is but one plow- 
land in this parish. This parish is the estate of the Ld. Lanes- 
borough; Mr. FoUiot is tenant to it. Henry Gostry, Prot., 
and John Nevill, Pap., live in this parish. About two English 
acres of glebe near the sea. The glebe and tythes of the 
parish belong to Dean Sam Synge, as Impropriator; nothing is 
allow'd by him to any olerg3rman for serving the cure; I don't 
know his pretence for it. The tythes and glebe are set for £6 


per an., by lease to Gapt. Folliot. The people go to Garricko* 
fine to church. 'Tis thought something ought to be allowed for 
serving the cure, tho' it does not appear that they formerly 
paid tyth. The Ooghans, who were the old proprietors, were 
very powerful, and 'tis likely ihey withheld the tythes with a 
high hand." 

''Oct. 1700. I saw Ringskiddy and BaUibricken. Rings- 
kiddy and Ballibrickan are one plowland and 15 acres. 
Ringskiddy makes the point betwixt Carrickoline bay and 
Baphine brook. There is a heap of rubbish in Mr. Abraham 
Dickson's orchard at Ballybrickan, which was a church here- 
tofore. Captn. Hayes remembers the walls standing. 'Tis 
said by the inhabitants that Ringskiddy and Ballibrickan 
belongs to the parish of Eilgarvan, in the Great Ishind. 
Sed Qu." 

'' The people of both these places pay their tythes to Mr. 
FoUiot, tenant to Dean Synge. Nothing is allowed to any 
clergyman. Island Greagh, Island Gore, and Island Gahill, in 
the harbour of Gorke (being almost unprofitable) belonging to 
the lands of Ringskiddy. Hallboling Island is the estate of 
the Grown. There is an old fort on it, built in Queen Eliz. 
time, now out of repair, formerly the Earl of Gorke was 

fovemor of it. All these islands, together with Spike Island, 
elong (as 'tis said) to the Great Island. Ringskiddy and 
Ballibrickan are the estate of Dean Saml. Synge. Mr. Abra- 
ham Dickson liyes at Ballybrickan. All these tythes of Ring- 
skiddy and Ballibrickan were formerly enjoyed as mensal 
tythes belonging to the Bishoprick of Gorke or Gloyne, by 
Bishop Synge, and were by him set to Gaptain FoUiot, about 
thirty years ago, for about £4 per an. Gaptn. Hayes, Qvu 
Dean Davies." 

'' Bollibricken, 'tis supposed, is the same with Temple* 
bracknany in the Visitation Books." 

" The people go to Garrickoline to church. Rinmahon par- 
ish contains 8 plow lands to the east of Blackrock. The church 
stood near Gaptn. Hayes* house, and near the village of Ballin- 
temple, so called from the church near it. Roch and Goppinger 
had most of these lands which they forfeited in the last rebellion 
to the king. Gaptn. Hayes and George Series live in this parish. 
No glebe. A plowland in this parish belongs to the Preben- 
dary of Ghrist Ghurch, worth about £40 per an. All the 
tythes belong to the OKSonomy, worth about £30 per an." 

'' The people come to St. &,rry's Ghurch. This parish has 
been supposed to be united to St. Barry's for these forty years 
last past. They pay tythe of turf and potatoes, <kc., in kind, 
in this and the adjacent parishes." [Downes' Tour.]

the effect that Eliza Meade "recants" on that day in the 
Parish Church of Ballinahoy, before James Delacourt, Clk.

He was ordained Priest on 24 July, 1737, at Cork. 

He held the curacy of Ballinahoy, from 1744 to 1755.

the " Prospect of Poetry." [Smith's Cork, vol. ii., p. 427.] 
1756 to 1760. John Wrixon appears as Curate. [V.B., D.R.]

No charge on the parish in 1832 on account of the church, 
divine service is celebrated twice on Sundays, generally, in 
summer, and once during the rest of the year, and on the prin- 
cipal festivals. The Sacrament is administered monthly, and 
on Christmas Day. The tithes of this parish compounded for 
£500, are wholly impropriate, and belong to the Earl of 
Shannon ; but it is reported that for the last forty years the 
parish has not paid tithes, the parishioners having, occasionally, 
during that period, been engaged in giving resistance to his 
lordship, and alleging that they are at present ready to do so, 
should he act on the suit still pending, conceiving that there 
exists, on his lordship's part, no legal claim. [Pari. Bep.]

nerer published any work. 

He wrote many small pieces in prose and rerse, and was an 
intimate friend of Malone. See Prior's *' Life of Malone** for 
some of his letters. He composed the following lines, not for 
publication, but as an expression of his feelings upon the death 
of his young friend, Mrs. Sturgeon ^dau. of J. P. Curran). 
They were intended afterwards to be inscribed as an epitaph 
on her tomb at Newmarket, but the intention was never car* 
ried into effect. 


" So late adorned with every grace of mind. 
Here gentle Sarah lies, to peace consigned. 
Thou soul of harmony 1 Thy harp unstrung. 
Rests the sad emblem of thy tuneless tongue ; 
Thy pensive grace, thy tasteful genius gone, 
Thy wit, thy playfulness for ever flown I 
Awhile, to charm the earth, thy^ powers were given, 
But now sublimed they own their natire Qeaven 1"

Codner, the clerk of the parish. A large church-yard, at least 
an English acre, well fenc't, and set round wi th sycamores. There

parish. Not far from the church is the old Castle of Caricko- 
line, tis almost ruinous ; it formerly belong*d to the family of 
the Coghans, now it is the estate of the Ld. Shannon. 

" Near Douglas, in this parish, is a burying-place, in an open 
field ; there is still remaining the foundation of a church, but 
they were carrying away the stones of the foundation. I 
charg*d them to carry away no more. The field is part of Sir 
John Mead's, set to the Potter at Douglass. This was, about 
100 years ago, the church of Carickoline parish, before the new 
church was built, where it now is, in the centre of ye parish. 
In this parish also there is another burying-place, near a village 
caird Balliarban, about four miles distant from Corke, on the 
left hand of the road from Cork to Carickoline ; it is in an 
open field. There does not appear any foundation of a church, 
but the ground seems higher about the middle of the burying- 
place. The Irish bury in this place sometimes. It is thought 
that there was a church here." [Downes' Tour.]

said parish.** [County Cork (Irand Jury Presentments.] 

*' 1699. Drummalegue lyes about six miles to the south- 
west of Dunman way. It belongs to Mr. Hignett. Very coarse 
country. Mr. Patrickson preaches there once a month, and 
Mr. Hungerford once a month. 

'* All the country, from Dunman way to Ban try, is very coarse 
mountain, especially on the right hand. 

" Caharagh lyes to the south of Drummalegue, and belongs 
to Mr. Patrickson. No church or divine service but at Drum- 
malegue. We pass through part of Caharagh as we go from 

''Mr. Trix preaches at Skibbareen twice in a month, and at 
Baltimore and Shirkin. 

'' 1699. Robert Howard, Verger of Ross, says that Caharagh 
parish is worth about £66 or £70 per annum. It is an intire 
rectory. That Drummaleague parish is worth £60 per annum. 
It is an intire prebend." 

''Wednesday, May 29th, 1700. I went from Ballimony to 
Drommaleague. Mr. Patrickson preacht ; there were no per- 
sons to be confirmed. Drommaleague Church, six miles distant 
from Dunman way to the S.W. is in repair ; only some of the 
slates are off. Divine service once a month by Mr. Hungerford 
for Mr. Hignett, and once a month by Mr. ratrickson for the 
parish of (&haragh. Abont 22 or 23 plowlands in this parish. 


All this parish, with that part of the rectory in Fanlobish 
which belongs to the Prebend of Drommaleague, is worth to 
the Preben<kr7 abpat £50 per annum. Colonel Sandford, 
Colonel Freake, Mr. Butler, Mr. Jo* Jarvys, are proprietors of 
land in this parish. A Bible and one Common Prayer-book. No 
registry. Mr. Hungerford promised to speak to Mr. Hignett 
to get one. Felix McCarthy is Priest of this parish. He was 
here before the late troubles. Mr. Anthony Butler, and Cap- 
tain Carthy, a Protestant, live in this parish. It would be 
very convenient that a minister should reside somewhere in 
Drommaleage parish, to serve that cure and the cure of Caha- 
ragh : divine service to be only at Drommaleage. No glebe in 
this parish ; no houses near the church. In West Carbery the 
clergy pay the tenth part of the land tax ; in East Carbery they 
pay the sixteenth ; and in Barriroe, the fifteenth ; and the fif* 
teenth in Ibaun." 

''A Protestant schoolmaster complains that Papists teach 
publick school in this parish. The holy sacrament adminis- 
tered four times in the year. No vessel for the communion. 
Caharagh Church, about two miles distant from Drommaleage 
Church to the S.W. lies close to the Island river, on the west 
side of the river ; 35^ plowlands in this parish, of which 29 
lie on the west side of the river, and 6-^ lie on the east of the 
said river. There are but 12 Protestant families in this parish. 
'Tis thought that there are 40 Papists for 1 Protestant in this 
parish. No glebe. Will. Guricheen, a very old man, is Priest 
of this parish. This paxish lies convenient to be joined with 
either Skibbareen, or, perhaps, rather with Drommaleage. 
Colonel Beecher, Colonel Sandford, Edward Galway, who for- 
feited in the last rebellion, and the Bishop of Ossory, have the 
lands of this parish, and Sr. Emmanuel Moore and Colonel 
Owen, als Beecher. The church is ruinous ; the north side is 
down. Caharagh parish is worth to the Incumbent about £70 
or £80 per annum. Mr. Atkins, Mr. George Wood, and Will 
White, live in this parish. I gave to Mr. Patrickson about 12 
Common Prayer and 30 small Prayer-books to be disposed of in

'"Thursday, August 10, 1699. I went from Ballimoney to 
Bantry. I lay at Captain Parker's hoose. Fanlobish Oinrch is 


about 3 miles bejond thai of ^baUimoney, to ih/^ west; the 
country thereabouts is Goarse and rocky. The church is corered, 
but many slates are off ; no pulpit nor seats ; about }ialf the 
church is rainons; the church-yard is well inclosed. About 14 
£nglish acres of glebe round the church. On the south of the 
church 6 plowlands belonging to the See of Corke ; 5 of them 
on the north of the river Bandon, the sixth on the other side of 
the river, called Hareagh. The tenants to the Bishop are Sir 
Richard Cox and Mrs. Moreau. The 5 plowlands contwn about 
500 English acces ; they are aet by Sir Biohasd Cox to an 
£nglishnuin for 50 U. per an. The sixth plowland is 9et, worth 
about XIO per an. These 6 plowlands are the best land there* 
abouts. Six plowlands belong to the Archbishop of Dublin ; 
they pay a chiefry to the See of Corke ; they do suit and ser- 
vice to the manor of Bosse ; these are rocky lands. 

*^ The £arl of Corke has two plowlands contiguous to the 
rest. He pays a chiefry to the See of Corke ; but these 2 
plowlands are reckoned in the Earl of Corke*s mantjr of Jnnis- 
kean. The parishioners are generally desirous to have the 
church at Dunmanway. If this church be not built the churctfi 
of Fanlobish ought to be repaired forthwith." 

" Dunmanway lyes near the centre of the parish ; near 30 
English fisimilies in the town. Divine service three Sundays in 
the month in a house in Dunmanway. There was subscribed 
£100 by Sir Bicbard Cox, and £100 by Mr. Patricksou, towards 
building a church or chappel of ease at Dunmanway^ besides 
other subscriptions." 

* ^'At a mile distant to the west of Dunmanway stands a 
chappel of ease, ruinous, called £ilbarry Chapel." 

'< Munday, May 27, 1700. I viewed Fanlobish Church. Fan- 
lobish Church is in the road from Ballimony to Dunmanway. 
The church stands near the eastern .end of the pari^ ; Dun- 
manway stands nearer the centre. The church is covered, but 
wants slating ; the walls Are not good. The ohoiioh-yard is 
largp, and well fenc't Sir Bichard Cox proposes to build a 
church at Dunmanway if it could be made the, parish church ; 
otherwise to make a chappel of ease there. The 6 plowlands 
of Nedineagh, belonging to the Bishop of Corke, lye to the 
south of Fanlobish Church ; 5 of them on the N. of the Bandon 
river, and 1 on the south of the same river; they are good 
land, and contain in all about 500 acres ; the best Und there- 
abouts is set generally for less than 2s. an acre. The 5 plofiv- 
lands of Nedineagh on the N. of the river, are held by Walter 
Plummer, terre tenant^ who holds no other land ; the sixth plow- 
land is held by Denis DuUea, who holds other contiguqus lands. 
The lands of this parish for the most part belong to the Lord 
Corke's brother Mr. H. Boyle, Sir ]EL. Cox, the Bishop of Cork, 
•the Arokbishqp of DaUiu, Sir Matthew Dean, Mr. Fenwick,

at Brommaleagne. The Vicar of Fanlobish has half of the 
tythes* The Prebendary of Dromaleague has one rectory in this 
parish, being half the tythes of 14 plowlands ; the Vicars 
Choral of Corke have half the tythes of 40 plowlands. The 
extent of this and several other parishes, according to the civil 
account, differs from the extent of them according to the eccle- 
siastical account. This parish of Fanlobish is worth to the 
Vicar of it about £50 or £'60 per an. There are two church- 
wardens. There is a registry kept here ; 12 acres of glebe 
adjoin to the east; of the ohurch*yard. No parsonage house.

1720. Nov. 27. The first sermon in the new church was

Philip Townsend, sixth son of Colonel Richard Townsend, of 
Castletownsend, was bom in 1664 at Eilbrittain Castle, near 
Timoleague, county Cork, and entered T.C.D. as a Pensioner 
on 20th June, 1684. He at first adopted the military profes- 
sion, and was a captain in the array, but subsequently entered 
into Holy Orders, and in 1706 was admitted by Bishop Dive 
Downes to the Prebend of Lisclexy, and by Bishop Crow, of 
Cloyne, to the R. V. Aghinagh, in Cloyne. These livings, toge- 
ther with the important Vicarage of the Holy Trinity, which 
he received in 1707, he held until his death. He was buried 
at the Holy Trinity on the 26th May, 1735. 

He married, circa 1705, Helena, dau. of John Galwey, esq. 
and by her had issue two daughters, Elisabeth (born 1709, 
died sp.) ; and Mary, born in 1710 (whom her fetther calls in 
his will his only child), who was wife to John Becher, esq. of 
Aghadowne, near Skibbereen, son of Colonel Thomas Becher, 
Governor of Sherkin Island, county Cork. Considerable estates 
were settled on that marriage, which now belong to the present 
Sir Henry Wrixon Becher, bart. of Ballygiblin, and Creagh, 
and Castlehyde, county Cork. 

Colonel Richard Townsend, the father of Philip Townsend, 
was descended from the ancient family of that name in the 
county of Norfolk ; and, having settled himself in Ireland, be- 
came the founder and common ancestor of the Townsend fisunily 
in the county oi Cork. 

In the reign of Charles 1. he was a Colonel of Infantry. In 
the civil wars of that period he would seem to have joined the 
army which served from 1642 to 1645, under the Earl of Essex, 
in support of the Long Parliament ; but refused to unite him- 
self to that new model of the army which was formed at 
Cromwell's instance early in 1645. He acted, however, with 
detached forces, which belonged to Sir Thomas Fairfiix's army, 
in the south-west of England, in the summer of the following 
year, 1646. He served at that time at the siege of Pendennis 
Castle, Cornwall, under the immediate command of the Honour- 
able Colonel Richard Fortescue ; and was one of the commis- 
sioners who were appointed on the part of the besiegers to 
treat about a capitulation, and who received the surrender of 


the castle, the 16th August. (See Sprigge, '' Anglia EediviTa, 
History of Army under Sir T. Fairfax," pp. 302-304 (London, 
1647 ; or pp. 306-313, Oxford University Press, 1854) ; Rush- 
worth, *' Historical Collections," part iv. vol, i. p. 295 (London, 

When the House of Commous caused troops to be forwarded 
to Ireland in the following year, 1647, Cromwell so arranged 
matters that only those who were opposed to his projects in 
England were sent thither. Accordingly, upon the 15th June, 
the Parliament " ordered that Colonel Townsend's regiment be 
hereby required and commanded forthwith to be shipped and 
transported into Ireland, for the service of that kingdom. (See 
Journals of the House of Commons, 1647, p. 211.) On the 
13th of the following November, Colonel Townsend commanded 
the main body of the English infantry at the great battle of 
Knockninoss, west of Mallow, in the county Cork, which was 
fought under the Earl of Inchiquin, against the Irish under 
Lord Taaffe. Subsequently, the English army being in great 
distress from the want of proper supplies, he united with Lord 
Inchiquin and others in a " Remonstrance," which was sent to 
the House of Commons early in the following year, 1648, and 
which is given by Sir Richard Cox, " History of Ireland," part 
ii. Appendix, No. 39, p. 140, London, 1689-90 ; and by Rush- 
worth, ''Historical Collections," part iv. vol. ii. p. 1041. And 
Inchiquin having shortly afterwards renounced his allegiance 
to the English Parliament, differences upon that subject of a 
serious character ensued between Colonel Townsend and that 
nobleman. (See Cox, Ibid, part ii. Charles I. pp. 198-202.) 

In the following year, 1 649, early in November, Cromwell 
having invaded Ireland, and taken the towns of Drogheda, 
Wexford, and Ross, the English garrisons in the county of 
Cork, in number about 2,500 men, not being able to " endure 
the thought of joining with the Irish against their own coun- 
trymen," united themselves to Cromwell, and proved to be of 
great service for the general subjugation of Ireland. In this 
important movement Colonel Townsend, acting with Lord Brog- 
hill. Colonel Courtney, Sir Percy Smith, and Colonels Qifford 
and Warder, took a leading part. (Cox, Ibid, part ii. Charles 
n. p. 12 ; " Life of Cromwell," p. 140, London, 1731). Crom- 
well writes, in particular, at that time, to Speaker Lenthall, 
that Colonel Townsend had come from Cork, in the " Nonsu<ih" 
frigate, to convey to him the submission of the English garri- 
son and Protestant inhabitants of that city ; and was with him 
at Ross (county Wexford), November 14, having, with others, 
" been very active for the return both of Cork and Toughal to 
their obedience." (See Despatch of that date in '^ Letters and 
Speeches of Cromwell," edited by Carlyle, vol. ii. pp. 94-96 ; 
London, 1846.) 



After the Irish war, about 1652, Colonel Townsend, it would 
seem, for a time went back to England. Subsequently he re- ' 
turned to Ireland; and, both during the Protectorate, when 
so many Irish estates were for sale, and after the restoration of 
Charles 11. in 1660, he made extensive purchases of land. He 
was seated for a time at Eilbrittain Castle, in the county Cork, 
and was Member for Baltimore in the Irish Parliament, which 
met at Chichester House, Dublin, 1661. At the instance of 
the Earl of Orrery, President of Munster, he was appointed 
Commander of Militia by the Duke of Ormonde, 1666. (See 
Orrery's "State Letters," pp. 156, 166, 170, folio, London, 
1742) ; and Smith, " State of the County and City of Cork," voL 
i. p. 6S, Dublin, 1774). And hiis purchases were confirmed to 
him by three several patents, in 1666, 1668, 1679. He finally 
settled himself at Castle Townsend, in the barony of West Car- 
bery. That site is mentioned in the patent of 1666 by its an- 
cient name, Sleugh teige. He became High Sheriff of the county 
Cork on 12th March, 1671. 

His son, Horatio, Captain of the "Lynor," sloop of war, greatly 
distinguished himself at the siege of Cork by the Duke of 
Marlborough, which took place in the reign of William III. 
September, 1690. (See Story, '' Impartial History of the Wars 
in Ireland," p. 141 ; London, 1693 ; Smith, Ibid. vol. ii. p. 207>. 
Shortly afterwards, in the same year, November 23rd, an attack 
was made by a Jacobite party of 500 men, under Colonel 
O'Driscoll, upon Colonel Townsend's mansion-house at Castle 
Townsend, which Colonel Townsend, with a garrison of thirty- 
five men, repelled, with considerable loss to the attacking party. 
(Story, Ibid. p. 151 ; Sir Richard Cox, MS. Narrative in Smith, 
Ibid. p. 211 ; Miscellany of the Celtic Society, edited by CDo- 
novan, note, pp. 396-7, Dublin, 1849.) 

Colonel Richard Townsend was married, and had issue eight 
sons and four daughters. Nearly two years after the assault 
upon his house ho died, July, 1692, aged about 84 years, and 
was buried in Castle Haven churchyard. His will is in the 
Prerogative Court of the diocese of Ross. 

His eldest son, John, had, in 1666, married Lady Catherine 
Barry, daughter of Richard, second Earl of Barrymore, by the 
Earl's first wife, Susan, daughter of Sir William Eiliigrew, 
knight. John Townsend died before his father, and left a 
daughter, Susannah. (See Scull, Cork, the Rev, Richard Towns- 
end) j and a son, Richard Fitz-John (see Colonel Townsend's 
will), who died after his grandfather's death, a minor, without 

Colonel Townsend's second son, Bryan, had, in 1666, been 
appointed Comet of Militia Cavalry (see references above to 
Orrery's State Letters, and Smith's County Cork.) Bryan mar- 
ried, about 1680, Mary, daughter of Edward Synge, ]Bishop of 

cohk.] holt trinity, ticabage. 115^ 

Cork, Cloyiiei and Boss^ and sister of Edward Synge, Arch- 
bishop of Tuam. 

In the reign of William III. in 1689^ Bryan Townsend's 
name, together with the names of his brothers, Francis and 
Kingston, appeared in the list of proscribed persons appended 
to tne great Act of Attainder, which was passed by the Irish 
Parliament under James II. (See the Act, with list, in Arch- 
bishop King's " State of the Protestants of Ireland,*' appendix, 
p. 348, Cork, 1768 ; and Macaulay, « History of England," 
chap. xii. William and Mary, vol. iii. pp. 216-220, London, 
1855.) It is not unlikely tbat Bryan Townsend may have 
been present at the battle of the Boyne, for we find him at 
Bel&st in 1690, May 21st, only three weeks before the landiug 
of William III. in Ulster, and six weeks before the battle ; and 
in that year he was made Colonel of Militia. (See Diary of 
Bichard Davies, Dean of Cork, edited by Caulfield, Camden 
Society, p. 115 ; London, 1857.) 

Five years later, in 1695, Colonel Bryan Townsend became 
Member for Clonakilty in the Irish Parliament. Upon the 
demise of his nephew, Richard Fitz-John, as abore, he inhe- 
rited the family estates. He had nine sons and fire daughters, 
who have left numeroas descendants. And, the male issue of 
Colonel Bryan Townsend's younger brothers haying failed, the 
Townsends of the county Cork trace their descent from his father, 
Colonel Bichard Townsend, in the male line only, through the 
male issue of Bryan. He died at Castle Townsend in 1726, 
aged about 78 years, and was buried at Castle Haven. 

The Rev. Maurice Fitzgerald Townsend, of Castle Townsend, 
Vicar of Thombury, Gloucestershire, is the present head of the 
family of Townsend in the county of Cork.

•' No Protestants" in this parish in 1699. [T.B. D.D.] 
^'Oct. 15. 1700. I saw Inchigeelah Church: it is 4 miles to 
the west of Kilmichael, on the north side of the Biver Lee, 
near the river ; 'tis about 70 foot long, the walls built with 
stone and lime are standing uncoyerM, the west end hangs oyer. 
A good large church-yard, a ditch about it, only three small 
windows in the church. About 100 plantat acres of yery 
coarse glebe near the church, belonging to the Incumbent, 'tis 
set at second-hand for £3 per an. About 23^ plowlands in 
this parish, the lands westward of ye church are yery coarse. 
These lands are part of the gentry diyision of the Earl of Chin- 
carty's estate. There were lately 2 or 3 Protestants in this 
parish, but now there are none. Mr. Brown did preach before the 
troubles once in three weeks for some time in Mr. Lock's house. 
Dennis Leary is Popish Priest of this parish, and Kilnemartery, 
in Cloyne diocese." 

" At Gougan Barry, in this parish, lives Dennis Mahony, 
formerly Priest of this parish, now a hermit, who has built 7 
chappels there. He was order'd at Borne to undergo the pen- 
ance of a hermit, having been guilty of fornication. 'Tis said 
that St. Finbarry from a cell in this place was remov'd to the 
bishoprick of Corke. In this parish, 2 miles east of the church, 
I saw, on the north side of the river Lee, the walls of a church 
or chappel, call'd Eillbarry, the walls built with stone and 
clay are standing uncover'a. The bounds of the church-yard 
are discernible ; 'tis said to have been a chappel of ease, built 
by the Learys. This parish was formerly worth £100 per an. 
now 'tis worth about 40 per an. to the Incumbent. More than 
half of this parish lies on the north side of the river Lee. 
There are the ruins of a chappel, call'd Agharus, on the north 
side of the river, in the north and west comer of this parish, 
belonging to this parish ; but Dean Davies did once pretend it 
belonged to the diocese of Cloyne, it being mentioned in the 
Visitation Books of Cloyne. I did not see this chappel. This 
parish is also caUed Iveleary, i.e. the habitation of the family 
of the Learys. The Earl of Corke, as Impropriator, has half the 
tithes of this parish, the Vicar has the other half ; the Vicar 
pays a crown rent of 18«. per an. for this parish. One rectoiy 
belonged to the Abbey of Moume. This parish extends to- 
wards the east from the church 3 miles, and towards the west 
from the church 9 miles.** [Downes* Tour.]

£248 186. lid, to have been the value of the house, &c. when 
finished; and £218 3<. 9d. to be the present value ; £30 lis. id. 
being sufficient to put them in as good repair as they were

ruinous ; there is a cabin built on purpose for a chapel in 
Bantry ; 75 plowlands and 8 gneeyes in the parish of Kilma- 
comoge ; about 150 persons usually at church in Bantry ; three 
Sundays in four Mr. Holmes preaches in Bantry ; the fourth 
Sunday he preaches in Captain Evanson's house, at Four- 
mile- water, in the parish of Durrows. Kilmacomoge being 3 
plowlands, belongs to the See of Corke, set for £12 ; well set ; 
and Innishbegclary, an island, set for £14, is worth about 
£35 per an. The 3 plowlands of Kilmacomoge are better 
land than the land about it, but 'tis small measure. The rec- 
tory of Kilmacomoge belongs to St. Catherine's Abby, of Water- 

" Kilchroghan lyes to the south-west of Bantry, about fiye 



miles, at the nearest, and about twelye miles at the furthest 
part distant from Bantrj ; no church, nor Protestants. Kil- 
croghan, 3 plowlands, belonging to the see of Oorke, worth at 
least £20 per an., is set to Sir Richard Hull for £5 per an. ; 
the land is better than the other land in that parish ; indif- 
ferent measure. The rectory of Kilcroghan belongs to St. 
Catherine's, Waterford, except the rectory of the 3 plowlands 
of Kilcroghan, which belongs to the Earl of Cork." 

^ Anno. 1699. Most part of the parish of Kilcroghan is the 
joynture of Mrs. Peyton ; the estate belongs to the Hulls for 
the most part. The greatest part of the barony of Bere and 
Bantry is the estate of the Eu'l of Anglesey ; Mr. Davys has 
an estate about Bantry and Whidy Island worth about £500 
per an., out of which he pays a chief ry to the Earl of Anglesey 
of £100 per an., and quit rent £150 per an. The parish of 
Burrows lyes close to the town of Bantry, to the south, and 
Kilcroghan to the south of Durrows, they both lye betwixt 
Bantry bay and Dunmanus bay. There was a chappel of ease 
in the parish of Durrows, near Bantry, before the year 1641. 
Bantiy bay runs about twenty miles up into the land. Bantry 
town stands within three miles of the highest part of the 
Bay. Mointer-Vary, in the parish of Kilcroghan, is the lowest 

foint on the east side of the mouth of the Bay, and Great 
sland opposite to it on the west. The Bay runs from the sea 
to the north-east. Barracks for one company of foot are 
building at Bantiy. Durrows and Kilcroghan are united pro 
hac vice to Kilmacomoge. Some Protestants in Durrows ; 
three Sundays in four Mr. Holmes preaches at Bantry, the fourth 
Sunday he preaches at Four-mile- water for the parish of Kil- 
croghan and the adjacent parts of Durrows. No divine service 
in any place westward of Bantry within less than twelve miles, 
in Kerry, at Glanerought. The ruins of an abbey lie within 
quarter of a mile of Bantir- Two little schools kept in Bantiy; 
31 plowlands in the parish of Durrows. The Earl of Oorke has 
the moiety of the tythes of 12 plowlands ; the Vicar has the 
remainder of all the tythes ; the Vicar's share is worth about 
£30 per annum ; 30 small plowlands in Kilcroghan parish ; 
the rectory belongs to the Abbey of St. Catherine's, Waterford, 
the estate of Sir Ellis Layton ; the lease of this, from the King, 
expired in the Earl of Elssex's time, and was then renewed by 
Sir Ellis Layton; only the rectory of the three plowlands of 
Kilcroghan belongs to the Earl of Corke." 

''The vicarage is worth about £16 per annum ; Bantiy bay 
runs from the sea to the north-east above 20 miles into the 
land; it branches itself into little creeks : on one of them 
stands Bantry or Oldtown ; on another, Newtown; on another, 
Ballilicky ; on another, the Snave. The bay is generally about 
a league broad. About a mile below Bantry are four or five 


little islands, as Horse Island, Hog Island, Cony Island, &c, 
Whidy Island is aboat 2 miles from Ban try, very good land ; 
about 1,000 English acres are set for about £80 per an. by 
Mr. Davys to Mr. Bemish ; frost seldom continues, nor snow- 
on tbis island ; the biggest ships may come on the west of 
Whidy with safety. Berehaven side of the bay is coarse rocky 
mountain, hardly passable ; there the cane apples, or Arbutus, 
grow on the sides of the most steep and rocky mountains. 
A river runs down a steep side of the hill ; springs generally 
on the tops of the hills, and bogs on the tops of the rocky 
mountains ; Pilchers were taken generally in this bay hereto- 
fore; few of late. Beds of escalops about the Horse Island, 
they are large.

of a thousand tuns, may come within Whidy Island ; no shal-

is very unsightly. The church was built about 1818. It is 
oblong, with tower, in which is a porch, and with vestry, but 
without transepts or spire. The interior was completely altered 
in 1859, and was fitted with benches. There is a gallery at 
the west end. A font of Bath stone (octangular, 3 feet 2 inches 
high, and 2 feet 2 inches at its greatest breadth) was given by 
the Earl of Bantby, who erected also at the east end astainea- 
glass memorial window, in memory of the late Countess of 
£antry, his deceased wife, to whom is inscribed a mural monu- 
ment on the north wall of the church. The west end window 
was also fitted with stained glass by the present Lord Bantry. 
There is a glebe-house and 32^ acres of glebe in Vicar's use.

are on the rolls of the schools, which are aided by the Church 
Education Society. 

The Curate is Rev. A. B. Wilson. The Protestant popula- 
tion is 396. The rentcharge is £468 15«. There are 43 acres 
of land, worth £75 per an., but as the enormous rent of £135 
9«. has to be paid to Lord Bantry for 32-^ acres of the glebe, 
th Vioar saffers an annual loss of £60 9f. by their occupation. 


The Vicar also pays £15 yearly to the Curate of Qlengariffe, 
q. y. His income, after these outgoings, may be set down as 
X393y with residence.

''On Munday, the 3rd of June, 1700] I left Skibbareen, and 
went to Skull that night. I lodg't at Mr. Bruce*s house, at 
Berrineha, near Skull. Skull parish extends six miles east- 
ward from the church, and to the west about three miles. The 
church walls are standing, and good, made of stone and lime, 
84 foot long and 24 broad. It stands near the center of the 
parish. June 4th, 1700. An act of vestry was made for rais- 
ing 12«. off each plowland for the repairs of the parish church. 
In this parish are the ruins of a chappel, near Dunmanus Cas- 
tle, called Kilkanget. 84 plowlands are in this parish. 3 
Sundays in 4 divine service at Skull in a house ; the 4th Sun- 
day at a house in Kilmoe parish. The 1 2 plowlands of Skull 
belong to the Bishop of Gorke; they lie round the church. 
These lands extend a mile and a-half from the church, towards 
the north, and take in part of Mount Gabriel. These 12 
plowlands include Castle Islandj the Middle and West Calves, 
and Carthy s Island, all which are in the parish of Skull. 
These 1 2 plowlands are as good as any thereabouts, but they 
are small measure. 

" The bay that goes up to Ballidehob is called Loughtrasnah. 
John Prouce, a good old man, is the parish clerk of this parish 
and Kilmoe. There are about 4 Protestant families in this 
parish, and about 400 Papist families. Daniel Carthy is Popish 
Priest of the eastern part of this parish ; he has been here ever 
since before the late troubles. No glebe in this parish. No 
registry-book, nor Bible, nor Common Prayer-book. A silver 
chalice and plate, the gift of Mr. Hull, the Rector, are in the 
hands of Mr. Randolph Warner. The Bishop of Corke, Colo- 
nel Beecher, Earl of Castlehaven, Mr. Hull and the Earl of 
Corke have the lands of this parish j and Mr. Sullivan, a Pro- 
testant. Mr. Hull, Mr. Bennett, Dan O'Hea, Armiger How, 
and Anthony Allen, live in this parish. Mount Gabriel, in 
the parish of Skull, is a haunt of wolves ; there are no trees nor 
shelter, except rocks and bogs. It is the highest hill in those 
parts, only Hungry Hill and other hills in Beerhaven are higher. 
From the top of Mount Gabriel we saw Dunmanus bay, the 
lands of the town of Kilcroghan, beyond Dunmanus bay, and 
also Bantry bay, with the hills of iBeerhaven. We saw also 
from thence Ballineskellix Islands, in Kerry. Mr. Bennet sales 
he has heard that the Bishop of Corke has some estate there- 
abouts. On the Skelliz, the gannet, as big as a eoose, breeds. 
There is a small lough on the top of Mount GkiDrieL Prum 
the rocks of Derrinetra^h we saw Castle Island, belonging to 
the Bishop of Corke. It lies to the S. a mile from Bhore ; the 


tenant pays to Mr. Hull for it £8 per an. There is an old 
Irish castle on it. Beyond Castle Island lies Cartliy*s Island, 
and the Three Calves^ good land, belonging to the Bishop of 
Corke. From the same rocks we saw Hoi*se Island, belonging 
to the Countess of Castlehaven ; the West Inniskeanes, good 
land, belonging to the Bishop of Corke ; the East Inniskeanes 
and Hare Island, forfeited lately by Coppinger, and granted to 
Dr. Lesley; Cape Clear and Shirkin, belonging to Colonel 
Beecher ; Long Island, belonginjEj to the Earl of Corke ; and 
Goat Island, belonging to Mr. Hull. There is a high steep 
rock in the sea, called the Fastnet, which, with Cape Clear's 
western point and Crookhaven, make an equilateral triangle, 
each side three leagues. The shore on these parts is all rocky. 
TheO'Mahons had above 100 plowlands formerly in this coun- 

"Tuesday, June 3, 1700. After prayers in the church of 
Skull, I confirmed about 40 persons that came out of the 
parishes of Skull and Eilmoe. I disposed of about 14 Common 
Prayer-books, and 3d small Prayer-books, for Skull and Kilmoe. 
The Middle and West Calves are in the parish of Skull, and 
the East Calf and the two Skames are in the parish of Agha- 
down. Some people live upon the East and Middle Calf, but 
none on the West Calf, The church of Skull is uncovered ; 
the walls are standing, well built, with lime and stone. It is 
about 84 foot long and 24 foot broad.'* 

** At a vestry held in Skull Church on June 4, 1700, Thomas 
Bennett and John Sullivan were chosen churchwardens of 
Skull, they were then and there presented to the Bishop of 
Corke, and sworn before him. At the same vestry, 128, on 
each plowland in the parish of Skull was assest for the repairs 
of the Church of Skull. It was agreed that only 30 foot in 
length should be repaired. I promised £5 towards the repairs 
of Skull, and paid it. There are 84 plowlands in this parish. 
This parish is about 9 miles in length and 6 miles in breadth. 
3 Sundays in 4 there is divine service at Mr. Bennett's house in 
Skull, and the fourth Sunday Mr. Vyse preaches at Mr. Cogh- 
lan*s house, in the parish of Eilmoe. John Prouce, a good old 
man, is Clerk of this parish and Kilmoe. The parish of Skull 
extends 6 miles eastward from the church, it reaches to the 
west about 3 miles and a half from the church. In this parish 
are the ruins of a chappel near Dunmanus Castle, ealled Kil- 
kanget. The bay that goes up to Ballidehab is called Lough- 
trasnagh ; several islands, viz.. Castle Island, <fec., lie in this 
bay. Daniel Leahy, a convert, teaches school in this parish 
at Gortineroagh. This parish is worth to the Vicar about £50 
per an. No glebe-house in this parish ; no collections, but at 
the sacrament. They pay tythes of fish ; the tenth fish. As 
to those that are remote, the Minister generally agrees with 


tbem for so mach a boat. There is a Bible, but no Gommon 
Prayer-books. Sacrament three times iu the year." 

** On Thursday, the 6th of June, I went to Eilmoeand Crook- 
haven, and returned to .Skull the same night. 

'^ Eilmoe : the church is ruinous, the walls that are standing 
are bad, built with stone and clay. The church stands about

200 houses there. It yielded £300 per an., rent. There are 
the ruins of a small fort on the east end of the town, built by 
the King. There are also the walls of an old castle about the 
middle of the town, which they say was formerly a prison.

Thomas Dyer, the tide-waiter, live in this parish. Tiege 
Coghlan is Popish Priest of the parish of Eilmoe, and of the 
western part of the parish of Skull, he has been here for about 
eight years. On the hill near Castlemehaga, which lies on the 
north side of Crookhaven bay, grows the Arbutus ; I saw some 
of them, they grow out of the clefts of the rocks on the side of 
the rock looking to the south ; the mould was black, wash'd 
down from the hill into the clefts ; 1 suppose 'tis good rich 
earth. A young Irishman, a Papist, teaches school in this 
parish of Eilmoe, about the middle of it. This parish is 
very hilly and rocky. This parish is worth about £25 per 
an. to the Vicar. This parish has 42 plowlands in it, 'tis

is also in Eilmoe parish a church, called Templenaboit, or the 
church of the poor, which was built in 1847 by the inhabitants 
of the district during the famine. The money sent to Mr. Fisher 
for relief of the destitute, instead of being distributed in alms 
gratuitously, was employed in giving labour, and procuring 
materials to erect this church. No horses were employed at' 
it, and all the work was done by hand. Besides the erection 
of a place of worship in a poor locality, occupied by Protestants, 
and distant about four Irish miles from Scull or Eilmoe churches, 
Mr. Fisher found also this benefit from his proceedings, namely, 
that while in the neighbouring districts the rates for relief of 
the poor were enormously high, in this district they were com- 
paratively little. Mr. E. H. Hopley is the Curate of Temple- 
naboit Church, in which there is divine service twice on all 
Sundays, besides an early service at 8 a.m. on Sundays in a 
licensed place of worship at Lissacha, a place in the same 
district. The sacrament is administered monthly, at Temple- 
naboit, and at festivals ; the average of communicants is 37.

Of Dr. Nicholas Brady, whose name will be remembered as 
long as the present version of the Psalms remains in our Books 
of Common Prayer, some fuller account than usual will be ac- 
ceptable. He was descended from the noble and once power- 
ful family of 0*Grady, which boasts an equal antiquity and a 
common lineage with that of O'Brien from the ancient kings of 
Ireland. {^Vide Keating, voL ii. p. 401, ed. 1809, and 
O'Brien's Irish and English Dictionary, p. 514. Vide also the 
families of O'Grady and the Lords Incbiquin and Guillamors, 
in Burke's L. G. and Peerage.] The first of the O'Grady family 
who took the name of Brady seems to have been Sir Dekis 
O'Grady, aJs Brady, knight and chief of his name, or 
''nacion," to whom ^ng Henry VIII. granted by letters 
patent, dated 5th January, 1543, the following lands (which 
had previously belonged to the ancestors of Sir Denis), namely, 
the manors, lordships, towns, &c., of Thoymcreny (Tomgrauy), 
Finnagh, Eylkchulybeg, Killachulymore, Seamboycronayn, 
Killokenedy, Clony, Killchonmrian, Enockeim, Parchayne, and 
the moiety of Kiltulla. Sir Denis O'Grady, als Brady, died 
(circa 1569), in Limerick, in a house, called the '* Archdea- 
kan's Courte," belonging to himself, having had issue four sons, 
Edmond (d. Sp. 27th December, 1576), Donald (d. Sp.), John, 
and Hugh. 

The third son, John O'Grady, als Brady, was heir to his 
brothers Edmond and Donald, and surrendered to Queen Eliza* 
beth all his estates on 26th of July, 1582. Her Majesty re- 
granted to John O'Grady and to his brother, Hugh, with limi- 
tation to the heirs, not of John, but of Hugh Brady, the same 
estates which are described as the manors, lordships, (be, of 
Tomgraney, Ballyduff, Ballynock, Aghrim, Ithnatty, Bally- 
mollowin, Ballymarrane, Ashrymdowgin, Fassabeg, Fassagh-

Hugh O'Grady, alias Brady, fourth son of Sir Denis, was 
bom at Dunboyne, county Meath, and obtained by conre3rance 
from his brother, John, the lands of Tomgrany and Scariif, 
&c., mentioned in above patents. He was educated in Eng- 
land, and was Bector of St. Mary, Aldermary, London (vide 
Shirley's Letters in Illustration of the Church in Ireland, page 
188 ; London, Bivington, 1851) ; and from 1563 to 1584 was 
Bishop of Meath. He married, firstly, a widow (whose dau. 
married Geoffrey Pinchbeck (or Pichebek, Chief Registrar of 
the High Commission for Ecclesiastical Causes in Ireland, 
and a kinsman of Sib William Cecil, the first Lobd Bubqhlby), 
by whom he had no issue ; and secondly, Alice (dau. of Bight 
Hon. Sib Bobebt Weston, Lord Chancellor of Ireland), by 
whom he left issue at his death, on 13th Feb. 1584/5, three 
sons, Lucas, Nicholas, and Gerald, besides a dau. Elisabeth. 
His relict, Alice, in 1585, married Sir Jeffery Fenton, Secre- 
tary of State in Ireland, and bore to him Sib Wiluam Fenton 
and Alice, wife of the first Eabl of Cobe, who erected to her 
memory the huge monument in St. Patrick's Cathedral. Of 
the Bishop's children, Elisabeth died unmarried, and was 
buried in St. Patrick's; Gerald, the youngest son, was a 
" student of Trinitie Colledge," and died Sp. having previously 
married Joane (dau. of William Conway, of Dublin, who was 
buried at St. Patrick's, in 1633), who married, after Gerald's 
death, Mathew Trott, esq., of London. Lucas or Luke, the 
Bishop's eldest son, as one of the Chieftains of the County of 
Clare, signed the treaty between Queen Elizabeth and the 
Lords of that county on 17th August, 1585 ; and was, I think, 
in 1591, though a layman, B. Bruhenny, Cloyne, q. v. He 
married Agnes Evans, by whom he had a son, Luke, born at 
Bosscarbery, in 1623, and a dau. Alice, wife of Laurance 
Clayton, of Mallow, brother to Sib Banpoll Clayton. The 
last-named Luke was heir to the property of Tomgrany and 
Baheens, county Clare, which remained in that branch of the 
Brady family until sold in the Incumbered Estates Court to the 
present proprietor, Mr. Mercian d. 

The Bishop's second son, Nicholas, was appointed Escheator 
of Connaught, in 1606, no doubt through the interest of the first 
Eabl of Cobk, who had married, in 1603, his half-sister, Alice 
Fenton. That Earl appears, from papers now in the possession 
of Lord Inchiquin, to have been joint proprietor with the 
Bradys of their Clare estates, and in the Down Survey of 1641, 
was owner of ten denominations of land in that county, includ- 
ing Scariff and Fassaghmore, while Mr. Brady was owner of 
eleven, among which were Tomgraney and Baheens. Nicholas 
Brady was probably brought by the same nobleman to Bandon 


(which was re-bailt or re-edified bj the Earl, in 1641), where 
he acquired a property in the town and neighbourhood, which 
^mained in the family until recent times. He afterwards re- 
moved to England, and died, leaying a son, Major Nicholas 
Brady, of Richmond, in Surrey, and of Bandon, county Cork, 
who married Martha, the dau. and heiress of Luke Qemon, esq. 
of Cork ("a Judge of singular meekness and probity,** who 
was Second Justice of the Presidency Ooort of Munster, 1618 
to 1660), by whom he hod issue, besides an elder son, whose 
descendants have been long settled in England, Nicholas 
Brady, the P. Kilnaglory, 

The foregoing statement of the descent of Dr. Brady from 
Sir Denis O'Grady, chief of his name, has been taken from the 
family pedigree, certified by Sir Wm. Betham, and verified by 
reference to the will of Bishop Hugh Brady, and by dooaments 
in the Ulster Office, t&c. The following account is taken fit>m the 
second edition of Vol. II. of the ^' Biographia Britannica," en- 
larged by Dr. Andrew Eippis, fol., London, 1780, with some 
slight alterations and additions from the family papers, now 
in the possession of Antonio Brady, esq., of Stranord, near 
London : — 

Nicholas Brady, born at Bandon, co. Cork, on SSth of 
October, 1659, was educated for a time by Dr. Tindall, of Cork; 
and when twelve years old, was removed to Westminster School, 
then under the care of the celebrated Dr. Busby. Brady was 
much thought of by his master, and was elected King's Scholar 
at Westminster; and from thence was sent to Oxford as a 
Student of Ohristchurch. After continuing there four years 
he went to Dublin, where his father then resided, and com- 
menced B.A., and in the following year, 1688, graduated a.m. 
His degree of D.I). was afterwards presented to him on account 
of his uncommon merit, and brought over to him to England 
by Dr. Pratt, then Travelling Fellow, and subsequently Provost 
of that University. 

He was ordained Priest, at Cork, on 28tli September, 1687, 
by Bishop Whetenhall, to whom he was Chaplain. In 1688 
he was appointed P. Kilnaglory, R. Kilmeen, V. Driuagh, and 
y. Castroventia, in the diocese of Ross, all which he resigned 
in 1692. He was, in 1690, Minister of St. Catherino-Cree, 
and Lecturer ef St Michaers, Wood-street, Loudon. He was 
afterwards Minister of Richmond, in Surrey, to which post he 
was invited by the gentlemen of that place in conseqnence of 
the high esteem they had conceived for him during a retreat 
which he had made thither while he was translating the Psalms. 
The vicarage of the Holy Trinity of Stratford-upon-Avon was 
given to him by the great EaUi of DoBssr, and the rectory of 
Clapham, by Damjs Rbbbooa (relict of Sir Richard) Atkins, 
Baronet, on 21st February, 170^/6. He died Rector of Clap- 


ham, and Minister of Richmond, on 22nd of May, 1726| and 
was buried at Richmond on the 26th of May. Dr. Thomas 
Stackhouse, author of the " History of the Bible/' preached his 
funeral sermon. 

Dr. Brady was a eealous promoter of the hite happy Revo- 
lution, and an eminent sufferer for it. In 1690, when the 
troubles broke out in Ireland, by his interest with King James' 
general, MacOarty, he thrice prevented the burning of Bandon 
town, after three several orders given by that Prince to destroy 
it. The same year, having been deputed by the people of 
Bandon, he went over to England to petition the Parliament 
for a redress of some grievances they had suffered while King 
James was in Ireland. 

Dr. Brady was Chaplain to the Princess of Wales, to King 
William and Queen Mary, and to Queen Anne ; also, to the 
Duke of Ormond's troop of Horse Guards. 

Dr. Brady had the character of being a person of most 
obliging, sweet, affable temper, a polite gentleman, an excellent 
preacher, and a good poet, disqualifications would undoubtedly 
have raised him, it was said, to some of the greatest dignities 
in the church, if the singular humanity and benevolence of his 
disposition would have suffered him to have run in with the 
violence of either prevailing party. 

He published, in conjunction with Mr. Tate, Poet Laureate, 
the well-known version of the Psalms, which first appeared in 
1698. Of the numerous and various editions of this work 
a collection has been made, at great expense, by Mr. James 
Lenox, of New York. The opinions of learned men as to the 
merits of the versification, and also as to the share Dr. Brady 
had in the composition of the several pieces, are nearly as 
various as the different editions. 

He published also : —

The Rev. Nicholas Brady married, on the 29th June, 1690,

Sir Wm. Betham has stated, or if the account of William 
Brady, of Sydenham, be preferred, she was Letitia, grand- 
daughter of that Bishop, and daughter of Richard Synge, who 
died Archdeacon of Cork in 1688, bequeathing to his daughter 
Letitia £500). Dr. Brady had issue by this lady four sons and

Letitia, wife of John Collins, esq., of Woolmers, Herts), a 
son, Nicholas William, born nt Richmond in 1734, who was 
precluded from a learned profession by an impediment in his 
speech, and was therefore brought up to business. He came to 
Ireland in 1761, nnd established himself in Dublin, having

*' 1699. About i^ve miles to the west of Baiidon, on the north 
side of the river, adjoining to the parish of Murragh, begins 
the parish of Eineigh. Near the river is Inniskean, a little 
market town, in the parish of Eineigh. The parish church of 
Eineigh stands three miles from Inniskean, to the north-west. 
Inniskean is the Earl of Corke's Estate. 

'' Eineigh : 30 plowlands in this pafieh. Half the t3rthes of 
14 plowl^ds belong to the Chantor, half the other 16 to the 


Yioars Choral. Eineigb Church is out of repair. Divine 
service once a fortnight at Inniskeau, by Mr. Patrickson. 

" Mundaj, May 27, 1700. I went to Kineigh ; the parish 
church stands three miles distant from Ballimonjto the N.K.W. 
The west end of the church is cover'd, but the wall-plates give 
way ; the partition betwixt that part of the chnrcn which is 
cover*d and the east end, which is uncovered, is not plaister'd. A 
bigh round tower stands in the S. W. comer of the church-yard. 
A door was in the north side of the church, and, it is thought, 
opened into a vestry. 'Tis supposed this church was formerly 
a cathedral. The church-yard, being an aore^ is well incWd 
with a stone wall. About 30 acres of glebe lie round the church 
of Kineigh. The country about Eineigb is indifferent coarse. 
Mr. Woods, and Mr. Ware, and Mr. Woodly live in this parish. 
Towards the north, at about a mile distance from the church of 
Kineigh, begins the parish of Inchigeulah. There is no church 
northward of Kineigh Church nearer than Macromp, which is 
seven miles distant. Kineigh Church ought to be kept in re- 
pair, and divine service, at least, continued once a fortnight. 
Kineigh parish is worth to the Incumbent about fifty pounds per 
an. The lands of this parish belong chiefly to the Lord of 
Corke*s brother. The country about Kineigh is indifferent 
coarse. But few Protestants live to the north of Kineigh. A 
stone is in the S.W. corner of the Church of Kineigh, counted 
very sacred, which the Irish solemnly swear upon. This 
church is accounted amongst the Irish very sacred. The Vicars 
house, built with stone and thatch't, is standing, and there are 
the ruins of a bam and stable. There is a tradition amongst 
the Irish that formerly in the church-\*ard there was a well 
that had great medicinal vertues, and that the concourse of 
people being very chargeable to the inhabitants, they stop't 
it up. Half a plowland of Kineigh, lying near the church to 
the west, belongs to the Bishop of Corke, and contains about 
60 English acres, indifferent coarse land. ' The Vicar of Kineigh 
has bfJf the tithes of Kineigh. The Chanter of Corke has one 
rectory, and the Vicars Choral another. These two rectories 
are nearly equal in value.*' [Downes* Tour.]

^ 1699. At Einsale Uie water is about 200 yards broad. On 
the west side of the river is the old fort, on the top of the hill ;' 
it is now nefflected. There is a small block-house at the point 
of the same hill, with about seven embrasures, near high-water 
mark, and a litde store-house in it^ but no guns* The new fort 
is about a quarter of a mile below the block-house, on the east 
side of the river. It has five bastions of stone — those two that

them. There are ' two tires of guna below the south curtine 
that faces the mouth of the harhoar ; the west curtine that 
looks across the water has one tire of guns below it. There 
are about 14.0 guns in all; 200 are designed. Several of the 
guQS are off the carriages, and the carriages are laid up. There 
is a hill on the east of the fort, within 200 yards ; it overlooks 
the fort. One of the bastions which looks towards the land is 
oall'd the cittadell, and is enclosed on the inward side towards 
the fort. The channel runs within 100 yards of the new fort. 
There is a sort of a barr a little below the new fort, so that 
first and second rate ships can't well pass, unless it be at high 
water. The old head of Einsale is the extreme point of land 
on the west side of the water. Pallisados, at the foot of the 
walls of the new fort, towards the land, were made in King 
Jameses time ; palllsados on the counterscarp were made about 
the year 1694. The walls of the fort that face towards the 
land were not well made, the inside being nothing but rubbish, 
viz., the walls towards the land. The English, in 1691, at- 
tack*d the fort on the east side ; they beat down the N.E. bas- 
tion from a battery plant'd on the side of the hill, at about 200 
yards distance. Lord Marleburrough, after thirteen days' 
siege, had it surrendered to him by Sr. Ch. Cotter." [Downes'

" Oct. 15. 1700. I saw Mackloueigh Church, near the river 
Lee, on the soath side of it ; the walls built with stone and 
lime, are standing ancoTcr'd, about 60 foot long ; the bounds 
of the church-jard are discernible, 'tis uncertain whether the 
inward or outward ditch. About 40 English acres of glebe 
lying round the church, belong to the Vicar ; 'tis good land. 
No house near the church. Barry Swiney is Priest of this 
parish, and of Kilmichael. This church lies near the Lee, on 
the south side of the rirer ; the town of Maclony is a mile dis- 
tant towards the north-west. There are eight and a-half plow^ 
lands in this parish ; all the lands were the estate of the Earl 
of Clancarty ; for the most part good land ; the Powels and 
about six families more of Protestants are in this parish. A 
prcmortion of the tythes of two plowlands in this parisli, viz.* 
of Eillbarry and Eillnaghrouna^h, belongs to the Treasurer of 
St. Pinbarry's; and 'tis said the proportion is half the said 
tythes. The monastery of Mourne Abby or Preceptory had 
the rest of the rectory ; 'tis now enjoy'd by the Vicar, according 
to Xing Charles the Second's grant by the Act of Settlement. 
Farrenavaragan being half a plowland, containing at least 
eighty English acres, belongs to the Bishop of Corke. It lies 
contiguous to the glebe of Macloneigh ; 'tis very good land, set 
by Mr. Warren, the Bishop's tenant, to Mr. Browne, for £9 per 
an. ; it lies near the river Lee ; half ye tithes of the lands of 
Coolcour and Slevins, lying on the north of the river Lee, be- 
longs to the vicarage of Macloneigh. No churchwardens in this 
parish ; there are generally no churchwardens in the parishes 
where the churches are out of repair ; I left with Mr. Browne 
7 " Tillotson's Sermons" and 12 small Prayer-books. No school- 
master here, nor in Kilmichael, nor Inchigeelah, &c. Some 
people fancy that this was formerly a Bishop's see, but I could 
find no reason for any such belief." 

''Oct. 15. 1700. I saw Kilmichael Church, built with stone 
and lime, about 50 foot long, besides the west end which is 
divided by a wall ; it looks like a house ; the walls of the 
church are standing uncovered ; the bounds of the church-3rard 
are discernible ; it lies south-west of Macloneigh, at two miles 
distance. Abont 6 English acres of glebe lie round the church,' 
belonging to the Incumbent. About 24 plowlands in this 
parish; a great part of it indifferent good land. The Earls of 
Cork and Clancarfy have the lands of this parish. Mr. Edward 
Jermin and about 7 femilies of Protestants more live in this 
pavisb ; this parish is worth at least £40 per an. to the Incnm- 



beiit. The Earl of Corke, a8 Impropriator, has half the tithes 
of this parish. The Vicar has the other half. This church 
seems fittest to be rebuilt, on account of its situation being 
nearest the centre of those parishes, whose churches are ru- 
inous." [Downes' Tour.]

This ancient parish seems never to have had any Inoambent 
from the dissolution of the abbey to which it belonged until 
1835. There is little notice of it in the diocesan records, 
except what here follows : — 

'^Oct. 1700. I saw Monkstown Church ; the walls, built with 
lime and sand, are standing ; the timber of the roof is op, and 
some slates on it ; the timber is beginning to deeay. There is 
no siffu of the bounds of the church-yard. There are two tombs 
on the south side of the church belonging to the family of 
Archdeacons^ who were the antient proprietors of Monkstown. 
There are three plowlands in this parish, the lands of which 
belong to the Lord Primate Boyle. Mr. (kllaghan, Protestant, 
liyes at Monkstown, in a good square oaBtle, with flankers. This 
diuzoh wa« repaired when Mr. Hodder liyed at Monkstowoi 


above twenty years ago. Monkstowu is near the barbour of 
Cork, over against the Cove. From Monkstown we see the 
Island of Halleboling, Spike Island, &c. There is no tythe 
paid, nor allowance made to any clergyman oat of this parish; 
'tis pretended by the inhabitants ^tis tythe-free; the tythes are 
set together with tiie lands to the tenants. The people of this 
and the adjacent parishes go to Carickoline Church — vii., those 
of Barnehely and Kilmurry. No glebe in this parish. The 
lands of this parish belonged to the Abby of St. Catherine's, of 
Waterford. Colonel Hanks had these lands in Cromwell's 
time. Hanks was supposed to be concerned in the murther of 
King Charles I. ; he sold them to Primate Boyle before the

Thomas Sheridan, the son of ratrick Sheridan, a gentleman 
who possessed a small estate near Eilmore, in Oavan, was a near 
relative of Patrick Sheridan, Bishop of Oloyne, and of William 
Sheridan, his brother, Bishop of Kilmore. By the help of the 
last-named prelate, Thomas Sheridan, when twenty years of 
age, was enabled to enter T.C.D. as a Pensioner, on 18th Oct, 
1707. He subsequently attained the degree of d.d. in that 

Having entered into holy orders, he became a schoolmaster; 
and was so much esteemed in that capacity as to have some- 
times made £1,000 in a year by his school. He was soon 
distinguished by the friendship of the celebrated Swift; and his 
correspondence with the great Dean of St. Patrick's forms 
almost the entire of one of the volumes of Swift's Miscellanies. 
By the Bean's interest Sheridan was appointed Chaplain to the 
Lord Lieutenant, and in 1724 R. V. Rincurran, which he ex- 
changed in 1 730 for the V. Dunboyne and Kilbride, in Meath 
diocese. The latter preferment he exchanged also in 1734 for 
the Mastership of the Royal School at Cavan. He lost in 
money, however, by his successive changes; and after disposing 
of the Cavan school for about £400, he fell into bad health, 
and died on 10th Sept., 1738, aged about 51 years. 

His character is given at some length by another friend of 
Swift, the fifth Eael of Cokk, who describes Sheridan as a man 
well versed in books and in the Greek and Latin languages, 
but ignorant of the value of money, careless, and improvident. 
His fortunes at' the Castle of Dublin were marred by his negli- 
gence in preaching at Cork, on the 1st of August, the anni- 
versary of King George's accession, on the text, '* Sufficient 
unto the day is the evil thereof." He lost, by this unlucky 
sermon, his post of Chaplain to the Lord Lieutenant, Lobd 
Cabtbebt, who, although accustomed to the petulance of Swift, 
never pardoned Sheridan's ill-timed, if not unintentional, joke 
upon his Sovereign. 

Dr. Sheridan remained, says Lord Cork, despite his disgrace 
at the Viceregal Court, ** a punster, a quibbler, a fiddler, and 
a wit. Not a day passed without a reous, an anagram, or a 
madrigal. His pen and his fiddlestick were in continual 

Tet, though thus unfortunate in life, and deemed worthy of 
no hiffher promotion than a Cork living or a Oavan school, 
Mieii&i was fortunate in transmitting th« gtniiu h« nn-

doubtedlj posseeaed in a high deme to his desoendants. He 
left issue by his wife, Elisabeth McFadden, a lady #f worth and 
talent^ two sons, Richard and Thomas, and four daughters, 
Anne, Elisabeth, Meliora, and Esther. His son Thomas became 
a famous actor, philologist, and lexicographer, and was father 
(by his wife, Frances, a granddaughter of Sib Oliybk Chambsb- 
laine), of the celebrated statesman, dramatist, and orator, 
RiGBABD Brinslbt Shbridan, as also of an elder son, Charles 
Francis Sheridan, Secretary-at-War in Ireland, and author of 
"The History of the Revolution in Sweden in 1772." 

R. 6. Sheridan, the statesman, was twice married — ^fiirst, to 
Elisabeth- Anne, dau. of Thomas Linley, and afterwards to 
Esther-Jane Ogle, dau. of the Dean of Winchester. His son 
by the first marriage, Thomas Sheridan, married Caroline 
Henrietta, dau. of Colonel Callender, and left issue, inter alios, 
Richard Briusley Sheridan, of Frampton- court, county Dorset ; 
Charles-Kinnaird Sheridan, Attach^ to the Embassy at Paris ; 
Helen-Selina, wife of the fourth, and mother of the fifth Lord 
DuFFEBiN and Claneboy ; Caroline-Elisabeth-Sarali, wife of

The following documents, extracted from the Visitation 
Books of 1684 and 1685, attest the zeal of Bishop Edward 
Synge to maintain the daily choral service in the cathedra], 
which seems to have been grossly neglected by the officials in 
ancient and modem times : — 

'' November 20, 1684. Acta habita, d^c. Quo die : Quoad

sequitur et est talis. Whereas, both by the general complaint 
of people, and by our owne observacion it appeareth to ns, that 
the publiq service of God is grossly neglected by the Vicars 
Chonill of the Cathedral Church of St. ffinbaries, Corke, and 
through their example (or as wee have reason to beelieve 
through the advice and approvement of some of them) by the 
organist, and others of the quire, contrary to orders made and 
provided in our primary visitacion, in the year 1679, as allsoe 
to other orders of the same import in ye visitacion of the yeare 
1680, both given under our hand and scale* Wee, therefore, 
for the effectual reformacion thereof, doe order, decree, and in- 
joyne as foUoweth : — ffirst^ that all the fewer Vicars Chonll, 


the organist, and all members of tbe quire, doe from this daj 
forwaid attend every Lord's Day att the canonicall hours, 
morning and evening, all (saving the organist) in their sur- 
plices, and from and after the first Sunday in Advent next en- 
sninffy dayly, and every day in the weeke, att the same canoni- 
oall hoars, morning and evening, and in the same habitt then 
and there to perform the service of the church, in the best 
melodies that they can, according to cathedrall use. Secondly, 
that they all take care to behave themselves with such serious- 
nesse, gravity, and devotion in all parts of their oflSce, as be- 
comes the worship of God, especially that they avoyde laugh- 
ing, talking, and even need^esse whispering to one another in 
service time, as allsoe all indecent postures and gestures of 
body. Thirdly, that if any of the Vicars Ghorall and other 
members of the quire being present att service shall willfully 
forbear to sing, chant, or answer in their course, such their 
willfull silence shall bee interpreted and punished as totall ab- 
sence for that weeke. Provided nevertheless that if the Deane 
of the said cathedrall shall perceive or knoweany of the Vicars 
Ghorall to bee diligent in their studyes, and iraproveing them- 
selves in theologicall learning, it shall and may oe free for him 
att his pleasure to dispense with the absence of such two of 
them upon ordinary days of the weeke, or upon any p*ticu1ar 
incident occasion, as he sees fitt, yet soe that there bee always 
two of the said Vicarrs morning and evening ever in constant 
attendance. And in case one of the said two, whose course of 
attendance it is, should bee through sickness or business en- 
forced to bee absent, he shall provide some other of his brethren 
to attend in his roome. All these orders and injunctions wee 
decree and require to bee observed by the said Vicars Ghorall, 
organist, and other quire men, as they will answeare the ne- 
glect of God*8 service, and bringing it into contempt with the 
people, before God*s Tribunall att the last day ; and in the

E. Corke (seal) Rosse.'^ 

A dispute having arisen among the Vicars Ghoral concern- 
ing the payment of the organist, the following decree is pro- 
nounced by the Bishop on ^/>th November, 1684 : — 

*' Whereas upon full hearing what the Vicars Ghoral have to 
say in defence of their owne claims, and after several admoni- 
tions that if they had any further evidences to justify their 
claims they should produce them, as likewise upon due exam- 
ination of all such records, old visitation books, and all other 



papers relating hereto, wbioh have come to my hands^ there 
appears no evidence or color of eyidence .that the small tithes 

'^ of St. ffinbarries did of old belong to the Vicars Chorall of said 

] church, but rather that they were (as is alleadged by the Rev- 
erend Dr. Arthur Pomeroy, Deane of the said church), cast in 
amongst other things by the said Deane and Chapter for the 
encouragement of the said Vicars, and towards the maintein- 
ing of an organist. And whereas we have se6ne an order or 

\ determination made by the most Ker. Father in God, Thomas, 
Lord Archbishop of Cashell, in his triennial visitation, Ano. Dni. 
1676, that the Vicars Chorall injoying such means as therein 
specified, and p'ticularly the small tithes of St. finbarie's not 
' reserved to the oeconomy, the organist of the said church should 
6i\joy the full beuefitt, that is, as wee conceive, his share or full 
dividend of the said means, wee do therefore order and reqtiire 
that the Vicars Chorall observe the said determinacion of ye 
most Eev, the Archbishop of Cashell, and that they forthwith 
pay unto ye p'sent organist such arrears of salary as are to him 
due, and fqr the future, at ye usuall times of paiment, do (tma 
time to time pay him his share or part as it becomes duo, and 
that they oertifie their obedience to this our order, under the 
hand of the said organist, by Christmas Day next ensuing, 

* under the pain of sequestracion of all their benefices till such 
time as the said organist shall be satisfied and paid such arrears 
as are, by the a^ustment of the said Deane, now due to him."

any p*8on in my life ; and where, ihrougli passion or ignorance, 
* I baye done any verbal wrong or otherwise injured any» I still 
made as snddaine and as ample a satis&cion as I oonld ; nor 
doth (I thanke Qod) my conscience at p'sent accuse me of 
allowing my selfe either in doing wrong, or in ye practice of 
any knowne sin, or neglect of any knowne Christian duty. 
And in particular as to jrt act of mine wherein I was charged 
with wrong and injustice, I do ayow it was just and good my 
right and duty to doe, namely, to finish my visitacion, which 
because ye principall day for it fell on ye Lord's Day, a time 
unfitt for any businesse (if it may be deferred) but devotion, 
I adjourned till munday, and ye one of ye principall p*8ons 
whose assistance wee needed to redress some things amiss 
willfully absenting himself, I was forced to adjoume it ye 
seconde time, hoping I might obtaine ye said p'sons p'sence, 
which by law and his canonicall oath he was bound unto, which 
I say I was in going about, was both my right and duty, as all 
clergymen, who will not be willfully blinde, doe plainly see and 
acknowledge ; nor did I intend any violence or rigour, but all 
candor and brotherly love in my proceedings, as my brethren, to 
whom Icommunicatodmyintentionsbeforehand, knew and know. 
As to ye charge of prevaricating in my opinions and practices, 
I confess I know not well what that means; but not to indulge ye 
temptation of reflecting upon any other^ I answer as to ye 
matters I suspect designed by ye accuser, namely, ye strict 
pressing all parts of ye churche liturgie as at p'sent it stands. 
I have conferred with ye most learnt men I could meet with, 
I have read, studied, and prayed, I have determined nothing 
rashly, I have been candid in declaring my judgement before 
my subscription and since, both in private and publick* My 
opinion, as to such points as I suspect meant, was in print, and 
dedicated to your two primates, yt now are of England and 
Ireland, before I was made a Bishop ; it hath been publisht again 
on another occasion since ; what is enjoined by our church I 
have proved to be lawful, what I conceived more excellent I 
frankly declared ; in ye mean time I never practiced contrary, 
either to what by ye law, Eccllcall, antient, and moderne, I 
might doe, or to what in conscience I approved, though for 
peace sake and obedience, which I wish all may affect as much 
as I doe, I have denied myselfe some satisfiftction; and as to ye 
expedience of some things, I have sacrificed my private senti- 
ments to such constitucions as I have been informed by some of 
ye principall Authors ye necessity of times would p'mitty 
though I have now lived to see those very reasons, which were 
other mens as well as mine, generally p'vail amongst ye most 
Iwmed in ye English church, and this I need not be ashamed

claymes the right of VisitiDg the first year of his accession, but

'^ Abstract of the decision of William, Archbishop of Cashel, 
touching the right of presentiug to the Vicarages Choral, 
now disputed by Dean Pomeroy against the Bishop of Cork. 
The Bishop of Cork's claim is, that some of his predecessors 
founded and endowed the College of Vicars Choral out of epis- 
copal lands. 

^ This foundation is proved by the Vicar's hall and houses 
(the ruins stHl to be seen) and lands called Vicar's lands or 
acres, all, both houses and lands, being encompassed by the 
Bishop's land. 

''Also, by a grant of certain proffitts to Vicars Choral, made 
by Dominick, Sbhop of Cork, 1554. This original grant now 
to be seen and read by me {i.e,^ by the Archbishop.) 

'' The Archbishop of Cashel refers to Sir James Ware De Prsa- 
sulibns Hibemize, p. 168, who says of Walter le Bede (trans- 
lated from Cork to Cashel, 1330) * Cum adhuc EpQs esset Cor- 
cag. Vicariis ibm habitaconem eomodam assignavit.' He 
refers also to the same author, de Archiqns Casnt et Tuam, pub- 
lished 1626. Ware, noted in mar^n, says he had this Ex 
Archivis Corcag. eccliaa. The Bishop also quoted R. V. 1634, 
out of Prerogative Office, by which it appeared that Brook, 
Johns, and Binns, were admitted and instituted by the Bishop, 
with mandate to ye Dean to instaU. The Bishop also urged 
that Michael Boyle, the first Bishop after the Restoration, 
exercised, his right without contest; and that Dean Roger 
Boyle, afterwards Bishop of Clogher, acted merely as his com- 
niflsary mlappoiniing to the Vicarages Choral.

right appointed William Scroggs, Maihias Eenion, John Tin- 
di3, Edward Hine, Thomas Dent, Thomas Goodman, Alexander 
Ogilby, William Denny, and John Dewey; but the Bishop 
contested these appointments, and several of these persons took 
out fresh titles froni the Bishop. 

^ Dean P. also alleges that the Dean is Ordinary of the Oathe- 
dral, and therefore colhites ; but the Archbishop of Oashel says 
he might also on those grounds claim to appoint thePrebendariea. 
^^Dean Pomeroy also alleges that Dean Fitzgerald (father to 
the present Bishop of Olonfert), before ye warrs, npon a con- 
test, carried the disposal of the Vicarages Choral from the Bishop 
of Cork ; but the Archbishop says that he spoke to the Bishop 
of Clonferty who recollects nothing about it ; and that even if it 
were true that the then Bishop, by reason of infirmities, or 
that Bishop Synge (when the gout had rend^^ him incapable 
of government) permitted the Dean to do as he pleased, yet 
that this could weigh little against prescription and long pos-

All the tythes of com of the sixteen plowlands in this parisb 
belong to the oMsonomy of St. Banys. All the rest of the

St Mary de Narde (where the King's stoue fort stands) have 
been united time out of mind to this parish. Sii^ shillings and 
- eight pence was paid heretofore to the Bishop of Corke out of 
the spittle lands of St. Stephen's. Bishop Synge received it 
from John Fouraores, paiable on Easter Munday. When Bishop 
Michael Boyle was here he liv'd in the city ; the Bishop and 
Mayor used to go to St Barry's Church together, but when 
they came to the middle of the eastern stone bridge, the Bishop 
took the right hand of the Mayor, and the sword and other 
ensigns were left in Alderman h ield's house, at the foot of the 
bridge, till they returned from church. Captain Hayes saies 
he hem seen this twenty times done. St Dominick's Abby, 
Red Abby, or St. Augustine's Abby, and Gill Abby, are in the 
south suburbs of Corke's, and within the union of St Barry's. 
The inhabitants come to St Barry's Church, but they pay no 
tithes, neither out of the sites of tbe Abby, nor out of the lands 
belonging to them. The lands of the parish of St Barry belong 
chiefly to the Bishop of Cork, the Earl of Cork, Dean Davys, 
Ignatius Qold (lately forfeited to the King), Captain Travers, 
Mr. Pigott, Alderman Charters, and Mr. Webber. Mr. Piggot,

are supported by a small endowment, the collections at the 
cathedral on Sunday evenings, and by voluntary contributions. 
The Protestant population, inclusive of Frank field district, is 
about 1,000. 

At Frankfield (a chapel within this parish, served by ihe 
Curate and the Catechist of the cathedral alternately), there is 
divine service ou all Sunday mornings. Sacrament monthly ; 
average of communicants, 11 ; and at Christmas and Easter; 
average, 29. 17 children attend a Church Education school. 
The Protestant population of the district (including the Dean's 
household) is 124. 

At St. Michaers (Blackrock), a Chapel of Ease to St. Fin* 
barry*6, there is also divine service twice on all Sundays, and 
once on the usual holidays, and on Wednesdays in Lent. Sa- 
crament monthly and on festivals ; average of communicants, 


45. About 40 children attend a Cburch Education school. 
The Protestant population of this district is 640. 

1863. A sum of money has been subscribed for the erection 
of a new cathedral on the old site. The plans have been 
chosen, and there is a fair prospect that Cork will soon possess 
a decent cathedral church, in which, it is to be hoped, the 
choral service will be used daily throughout the year.

Charles the Second, by the grace of God, of England, Scotland, 
France, and Ireland, King, defender of the &ith, and soforth. 
To all to whom these, our present letters, shall come, greeting. 

Whereas, We understand that the inhabitants of the parish 
of St. John, near our city of Cork, and lying in the county of 
the said city, in our Kingdom of Ireland, were since the 
memory of man dependent, and still are dependent, upon the 
Cathedral Church of St. Finbarry, of Cork, for all pastoral 
offices, and thence enjoy them ; and being informed that from 
our happy restoration the said Cathediul Church has been des- 
titute of all choral service, from want of a fitting endowment; 
and, moreover, understanding that the said rectory of St. John 
is now vacant, and appertain in? and belonging to our gift and 
free disposition (by our full right and patronage). 

Know ye, therefore, that We, of our especial grace, certain 
knowledge, and mere motion, by and with the assent and con- 
sent of our well-beloved and faithful cousin and counsellor, 
James, Duke of Ormond, our Lieutenant-General and General 
Governor of our Kingdom of Ireland, and also according to the 
term and effect of certain letters signed with our own hand, and 
sealed with our seal, at our Court of Whitehall, the twenty- 
seventh day of October, in the thirty-first year of our reign, 
and in the year of our Lord one thousand six hundred and 
seventy-nine, and now enrolled in the Rolls of our Chancery of 
our said Kingdom of Ireland, We have given, granted, and 
conferred, and by these presents We do give, grant, and confer

support of one Priest Vicar Choral, who shall catechise the 
children of tbe Parish of St. John aforesaid in the midst of 
the Cathedral Church of St. Finbany, of Cork, according to 
the laws of the Church of England. And, moreover, for tbe 
support of one lay Vicar Choral, and so many singers or chor- 
isters as the rents of the said rectory extend to, and that every 
of them shall daily officiate in the said cathedral or choir of 
Saint Finbarry, according to the choral usage of the Church

B.etuming thereout to us, our heirs and successors, to wit, at 
the hands of our Vice-Treasurer or General Receiver of us, our

"1700. St. John's Church stood to the east of Red Abby ; 
it is ruinous, and has been so for eighty years. Several par- 
cels of glebe, some in the north suburbs of Corke, belong to 
this parish, and all the tithes of this parish, which was for- 
merly the possession of the priory of St. John of Jerusalem. 
They were lately given by the King for the maintenance of 
the quire of St Barry's. There was formerly a house near 
the church, where they entertained the Knights of St. John of 
Jerusalem, in their travels. Mr. Thomas Roberts heretofore 
hetd iliis priory by lease from the Crown during his life, after 
him Mr. Parry, and then Mr. Edward Synge, enjoy'd it during 
Mr. Parry's life. Upon Parry's death Dr. WetenhaU, Bishop 
of Corke, got the King's patent appropriating it to the quire, 

CORK.] ST. JOHN. 279 


paying the former rent reseryed. The glebe and tjthes are 

worth about . The people of this pariah go to St. Barry's 

Church. The parish has been supposed to be united to St. 
Barry's^ ever since the dissolution of the priory. The church- 
wardens of St. Barry's serve for this and the adjacent parishes, 
and also for the three Abbys in the south suburbs." 

" An. 1702. A little beyond Bed Abby, to the east, stood 
St. John's Church, the side walls are standing, but the gable 
ends are down. They bury sometimes in the church ; but 
there are no signs of the bounds of the church-yard, as there 
are gardens all round the church. Betwixt Bed Abby and St. 
John's Church is the mass-house, a long cabin, that will con- 
tain about 400 persons. St John's Church and parish be- 
longed to the knights of St. John of Jerusalem. Upon the 
dissolution of that order it came to the Crown, and was leased 
from the Crown in Charles the First'a time. The lease being 
expired, Mr. Boberts (Clerk) got a presentation of it from the 
Crown, and it has been ever since in the possession of the church. 
About the year 1664, Mr. Edward Synge had the intire rec- 
tory of St. John of Jerusalem. About the year 1694, Mr. 
Bowland Davys got a presentation of it from the Crown, as 
being vacant ; but Bishop Synge compounded with Mr. Davys, 
and gave him some other livings, and kept St. John's for his 
son. Upon Bishop Synge's death. Bishop Wetenbal coming to 
the see got a patent from the Crown, appropriating the parish 
of St. John's to the use of the quire of St. Pinbarry's. 

" 1704. Bed Abby, in the south suburbs of Corke, belong'd to 
the monks of St. Augustine. Some gardens and houses near the 
Abby belong'd to it, and a small piece of ground and mill, 
call'd Ballivracks, near Douglas, belonged to the Abby. This 
Abby, with the lands, <&c., belonging to it, is the estate of my 
Lord Primate Boyle. The lands of this and the other Abbys 
pay no tithes. This Abby is said to be in St. John's parish."

" Non procul a Corcagia ordini eremitorum Sti Augustini,

1860. Without reference to the chapter books of the cathe- 
dral, which have not latterly been accessible to inquirers, it is 
impossible to trace the uses to which the revenues of St. John 
have been applied. It may, however, be fairly presumed that 
they have been appropriated always to the maintenance of the 
Choir, or of the Curate, or Beader, at the cathedral. The pre- 
sent Beader, Bev. I. M. Beeves, was appointed by the Bishop 
of Cork, in 1850, to the Vicarage of St. John of Jerusalem ; 
but it does not appear that he is either the Priest Vicar 
Choral, whose duty was to catechise in medio eccledce, or the

vice in the cathedral, under the patent of Ohasles II. 

Isaac Morgan Beeves (eldest son of T. S. Reeves, esq., nde 
Carebagh, Rev. James S» Reeves) was educated at T.C.D^ 
where he obtained a Senior Moderatorship in Ethics and Logics 
in 1841. He graduated b.a. in 1842, and m-a. in 1853. 

He was ordained Deacon at Kilkenny, by the Bishop of 
Ossory, on Slst Dec. 1844, and Priest at Oavan, by the Bishop 
of Kilmore, on letters dimissory from Cork. 

In 1844 he was Curate of Douglas, in the parish of Carrigsr 
line, to which he was licensed on 29tli May, 1 847. His licence 
was transferred from Carrigaline to the Holy Trinity on 3nl 
July, 1850. He was, in the latter year, appointed by tha 
Dean of Cork to the curacy of St Finbar's, and at the same 
time to the Vicarage of St. John of Jerusalem by the Bishop. 
In February, 1 858, having resigned the curacy of St Finbar*8, 
he was appointed by the Bishop to be also Reader in the

" 1700. St. Francis' Abby, in the north suburbs of Cork, 
belonged to the Franciscans. Half a plowland near the Abby, 
and several other parcels of land in the country, belong to this 
Abby. This Abby, with the lands belonging to it, is the 
estate of the £arl of Orrery. This Abby is said to be in Shan- 
don parish." 

** May, 1700. St. Francis's Abby is on the north side of the 
Lee, in the north suburbs of Cork. The site of it contains a 
few gardens on the side of the hill near the Abby. It is the 
estate of the Lord Orrery, and before the late troubles was 
held and inhabited by Mr. Eogers, Thomas Cooke, and others. 
In King James's time, a new chappel was built by the Friars 
on part of the Abby, but not where the former chappel stood. 
Some Friars lived there. In the time of the siege, the Abby, 
with the rest of the suburbs, was burnt A good strong steeple 
remains standing. The chappel that was lately built, having 
been burnt with the Abby, was repaired by Mr. Morrison, a 
merchant, and is now used by him as a warehouse." 

" 1702. The hospital in Shandon parish. — One Stephen 
Skiddy long since settled twenty-four pounds per annum (pay- 
able by the Company of Vintners in London, out of certain 
houses in that city) upon the Mayor and Corporation of Corke, 
to be bestowed by them upon ten poor people, which they 
accordingly did. The said annuity of 24 li. per an. was duly 
paid to the year 1644 ; and what was farther due to the year 
1660, Sir Eobert Coppinger, the last Papist Mayor, got into his 
bands, and never accounted for it.

^From the year 1660, or soon after, the said annaity was paid 
into the hands of Christopher Bye, Alderman of we city of 
Oorke, a third part being for some years defalkt on account of 
the fire of London. The said Alderman Rye, npon his account 
with the city a little before his death, appeared to have dis- 
bursed about eighty pounds of this said mony (so receired by 
him) for the use of the Corporation, and to have besides re- 
maining in his hands 114 li., for which he ofier'd his bond, 
which, by neglect, was never taken. And the said Rye's 
executors having no assets remaining, and his heir deriving 
under a settlement, the said 114 li. is irrecoverably lost. 
From the death of Alderman Rye the said annuity was received 
by Robert Rogers, Alderman of the said city of Corke, who, 
out of it, has rebuilt the said house for the said ten poor people 
(which was fallen down), and fairly accounted with the city. 
From the time that the said house has been rebuilt, the said 
money, as it comes in, is applied to the use intended by the 

^' An. 1702. This hospital is sufficient for the reception of 
twenty poor people. There are in it at present, of old men and 
women, sixteen. Eight of these have tenpence weekly, besides 
their lodgings, the other eight have nothing besides lodging.** 

** In Shandon parish is Bretridges Hospital, joyniug to the 
fore-mentioned hospital. Captain Bretridge, about the year 
1678, by will, settled some lands in the barony of Duhallo, for 
the maintenance of seven poor Protestants of the Church of 
England. Each of them to have eighteen pence a week and 
twenty shillings apiece on St Simon's and St. Jude's day, 
yearly, for clothing. And if there be any overplus, it is to be 
laid out in putting out as apprentices poor boys of the city of 
Corke. The lands were heretofore set for 36 li. per annum. 

"An. 1702. There are now but five poor men in the hospital, 
the rent of the lands not being sufficient fur the whole number. 
The Mayor, Recorder, and Sheriffs of Corke, are governors of 
the hospital. Mr. Hartstonge, the grandson of Capt. Bretridge, 
is to nominate the poor men during his life, afterwards the 
Mayor and Sheriff of Corke, and the Minister of Shandon, are 
to nominate them." FDownes' Tour.]

ship), of St. John, St. Stephen, St. Mary de Narde, St. Domi- 
nick, and St Magdalene, are given under this parish of St 

^The Church of Narde was anciently possessed by Gill- 
Abbey. Anno 1270, the parish of Narde wajs granted to 
Reginald, Bishop of Cork, by Prince Edward, then Lord of 
Ireland, by donation from his £i.ther, King Henry III., for the 
relief and amendment of tJve state of the Church of Oork, as the 
record saith ; as also the Chapel of St Peter, at Cork, to hold 
in frank almoigne. Dated 20th of May, that vear. But a.d. 
1299, King Edward I. recovered against Robert, Bishop of 
Cork, by writ of right of advowson, the patronages of the same 
churches, viz., St Mary, of Narde, in the suburbs of Cork ; the 
Church of Kilmanock, NochynvaU, and that of St Peter's, of 
Dungarvan, in the suburbs of that city. The Bishop's defence 
as to the advowson of St. Mary, of Narde, Kilmanock, and St. 
Peter's, was through the above-named grant But judgment 
waa given against him, because King Edward, when he made 
the grant, had no right to the said advowson, his father. King 
Henry, being then alive, and the Prince having at that time 
nothing in Ireland but by his father's gift, which shows that 
the Prince was no other than a Viceroy or Lord Lieutenant

*' 1700. St Bridget's Church stood where the fort called the 
Cat is now built, on the south side of the Cat. There is no 
appearance of the ruins of the church. The ruins did appear 
before the last war. This parish contains the place where the 
barracks are built, and the houses on the south and east of the 
barracks to the Spittle lands and St. Nicholas parish. The 
plowlands Maglin and part of Curriheen, near Eerrigrohan, pay 
all their tythes to the Chancellor of St. Barry, as belonging to 
this parish, of which the ChanoeUor has the intire rectory. No 
glebe in this parish. The whole tythe of this parish is worth 
about £8 per an., and belongs to the Chancellor of St Barry's. 
The people of this parish go to St. Barry's. The Lord Bomney has 
an old estate in this parish, and Counsellor WelsL More than 
half of the people in this parish are conforming Protestants." 

*^ St Nicholais Church stood to the west of Red Abby ; it has 
been ruinous time out of mind. It is supposed to lie united 
to St Barry's. The church-yard is inclosed, but there is a 
way through it. Some houses, viz., Piper's holding, &e,^ near 
the chnrch-yard, belong to this parish. The houses, glebe, and 
all the tythes of this parish belonged formerly to the priory of 
St John of Jerusalem, now to the quire of St. Barry'&" 

^' St Mary's de Narde Church stood in the place where the 
King's stone fort now stands, the ruins of it do not remain. 
The stone fort was built in Queen Elizabeth's time, and was 
raised higher by Cromwell. The west side of the street com- 
ing from the south bridge and up to the mitre, and also the 
north side of the fort belong to this parish. There is no dis- 
tinct Constable in this parish, nor in St. Nicholas. There are 
two Constables for St Nicholas, St. John's, <&c., in the south 
suburbs, within the city jursdictions. No glebe belongs to 
this parish, nor tythes, except the tythes of some gardens, 
which are worth little or nothing. The tythe belongs to the 
Vicars Choral of St Barry's. There is no valuation of the 
houses in this parish, nor in St Nicholas, nor the adjacent 

garishes, for l^e support of the Ministers. No churchwardens 

^' St Stephen's Church stood where the new hospital is now 
building. No ruins of the church appear. This parish con« 
tained half a plowland. This half plowland belonged to the 
Lepers' Old Hospital of St Stephen's. This plowland was set 
lately for X150 per an. The tythe of these lands belong'd 


alao to the hospital, it wm set for JCIO per aa« Three plow- 
lands on the north side of the river Lee, called Ballineboght^ 
helong'd to this hospital. These lands are in Shandon parish, 
and are worth abont £120 per an. Several honses are built 
in this parish of St Stephen's ; the people^go to St. BarrVs. 
This parish is said to be united to St. Biutj as the oUier 
parishes are. The Bishop of Corke formerly received six shil- 
lings and eight pence yearly out of these lands, or tythes, 
either as a chiefrv or as prozeys. John Foreacres paid it to 
Bishop Synge. There was formerly a prior of St Stephen's.** 
'U702. St. Nicholas Church stood above Mr. Morrison's 
house, in the street going to Bed Abby. The walls are stand- 
ing, and there is a good church-yard belonging to it, on the 
south side of the church. In the street going to the Bed Abby 
is an almshouse, buUt by the &ther of Mr. Bonan, <^ Bonans- 
court, and bv him settled on such poor as his heir shall place 
in it. The heir is to repair it Tt is a good stone hoose^ four 
rooms on a floor ; twelve in all ; there are abont twenty persons 
in it at present, of which three are men, the rest women. 
Before Mr. Bonan was restored to his estate, and since the late 
troubles, a Protestant had the disposal of the house, under, as 
I suppose, the Lord Bomney, who fill'd it with Protestant 
poor ; but Mr. Bonan being restored to his estate about two 
years ago, he has ever since, as the Protestants died, fill'd their 
places with Popish poor. There are now about six Protestants, 
widows ; and fourteen Papists, in the house* The poor have 
no allowance, except their house-room, except those Protest- 
ants in it that are on the church-book in St Barry's, who have 
seldom above twelve pence apiece per week, and about Is. 6d. 
per quarter out of Smart's legacy." 

'' 1702. St Stephen's Church stood where North's Blew-ooat 
Hospital now stands. The south side of the Hospital-court 
wall stands upon the foundation of the north side of the church. 
There is no sign of a church-yard." [Downes' Tour.]

" 1720. The church of St Nicholas, pursuant to the Act of 
Parliament for the union and division of parishes, was begun to 
be erected on the 19th of January, 1720, a church being wanted 
in the south part of the city by the increase of the f^testant 
inhabitants. This work was chiefly promoted by Bishop 
Brown, and by the joint and cheerifal contribution of other 
well-disposed persons, by whose assistance it was completed in 
1723, and the first sermon preached therein on the 1st of Sep- 
tember, by Archdeacon Bvre. It is a small, neat ohorch ; has 
a pretty ^edlery on the Wt end, and is well pewed. The altar- 


piece and pnlpit are well carved, and adorned with fluted 
oolnmns of the Corinthian order. The Incumhent is supported 
hj a Yolnntary snbscription of the inhabitants. Here is early 
serrice and sacrament every fourth Sunday of the month.'*

The Act (25th Geo. 11. chapter 23, sections 10 and 11), 

recites, " that St. Nicholas parish, in Cork, is so small, and so 

intermixed with other small parishes, that there is no provision 

for a minister, that the church is in danger of ruin, and that 

there is no church whatever for those other parishes ; it is 

enacted, that the Bishop of Cork, with approbation of the 

Archbishop, and with the consent of the Dean and Chapter, 

and majority of the adjacent parishioners of the south suburbs 

of Cork, may, at vestry in St. Nicholas Church, unite such 

parishes to St. Nicholas parish for ever ; the inhabitants to be 

liable to such taxes, &c., as those of the old parish of St. Nicholas 

have been liable to. The said united parish shall be the corps 

of the Chancellorship of St. Finbarry's, as the parish of St. 

Bridget's was before ; and the Chancellor of St. Finbarry's shall 

be Rector of said union* [Statutes of Ireland.]

George Webster (son of Michael Webster, esq.) was bom in 
Dublin, and when sixteen years old matriculated as a Pensioner 
in T.C.D., on drd May, 1847. He graduated a.b. in 1852, and 
A.]f. in 1856. 

He was ordained Deacon, at Dublin, on 25th Sept., 1853, 
and Priest, at Killaloe, in September, 1854. He was, in 1853, 
Curate of Castlemacadam, county Wicklowj in 1854 junior, 
and in 1856 senior Curate of Donnybrook, Dublin. In 1857 
he was appointed domestic Chaplain to the Bishop of Cork, and 
Preacher and Librarian at Cork Cathedral 

He married, on 7th May, 1859, Gertrude- Adeline, the only 
daughter of the late William St John Smyth, Chancellor of 
Down, R. Ballymoney, and private Chaplain to Bishop Mant 
He has issue by her, two sons, Reginald-Godfrey-Michael, 
and Geoige- Arthur, and a daughter, Blanch-Eveline. 

Mrs. Webster died on 21st Nov., 1862, and was buried in the 
vaults of St Nicholas' Church, where a stained glass window 
(for which already £100 has been subscribed) will be placed 
to perpetuate her memory. 

Mr. Webster is domestic Chaplain to Dr. Fitsgerald, Bishop 
of Killaloe. 

He has published— -1. Notes of Lectures on the New Testa- 
ment. 8vo. Parker and Bourne, London. 2. Witness of 
the Spirit. 3. Amusements — A Lecture, &o, 4. The Import- 
ance of Studying the Evidences of Christianity. 5. Why are

The Scripture Doctrine of Regeneration. Almost all the 
above works were published by Metsrs. Hodgeii and Smith, 


Dublin.^ The last six are tracts, which haye had an extensiye 
circulation, and to which about twenty answers were pub- 
lished by yarious writers. 

1862. The yariance between the gross and net yalue of this 
benefice, as set down in the Irish Church Directory, requires ex- 
planation. The apparent yalue of St. Nicholas in 1862 was 
£432 4«. 4d.f arising from £3d8 18«. 8d. minister's money, 
£63 08. 8d. rents and rentcharges, and £10 surplice fees. Ria 
actual payments to two Curates and for house-rent were 
£204 8». His apparent income would, therefore, be thedifierence 
between £432 4«. id. and £204 8«., namely, £237 16^. 4d 
Instead of this the actual income of the Chancellor was much 
more, in consequence of a clause in the recent Act of Parlia- 
ment, by which the Ecclesiastical Commissiouersare obliged to 
pay, in addition, to the Incumbents of all parishes receiying 
minister's money, an allowance of 25 per cent, on all the items 
of necessary expenditure, such as house-rents, stipends to 
Curates, &c., &e. 

For instance, in 1862, the Chancellor receiyed as follows:— 
Minister's money, . . £358 18 8 

Bents and rentcharges, . . 63 5 8 
Surplice fees, . . 10 

Allowance of 25 percent on £211 

15ff. Id, necessary expenditure, 52 18 8 

Total income, . £485 3

For stipend of two Curates, at £75 
per an. (income tax deducted), £144 

House rent, .... 

Income tax on minister's money, 

Income tax on allowance of 25 per 
cent, .... 

Poor-rate and income tax on rents 
and rentcharges. 

Expenses of collection of rents, &o.,

Total expenditure, . £233 18 7 

Total income, . . £485 3 

Total expenditure, « 233 18 7 

Net yalue in 1862, . 251 4 5 

The Chancellor is also Chaplain of the poorhonse, for which 
he receiyes £60 per annum. 


His real income in 1862 from all sooroes, after the aboye 
expenditure, waa £311 4«. 5<L 

It is to be remarked, that in all parishes receiving minister's 
money a Garate whose stipend is £100 per annum costs the 
Rector but £75 per an. ; or a Curate at £75 costs the Bector but 
£56 5«. It is also to be noted that the true value of any benefice 
-which is entitled to minister's money varies with the poor-rate, 
or income tax, or as often as any change takes place in the 
items of necessary expenditure, or in the number of Curates 

The income of the chancellorship may in future years be 
increajsed by an addition of nearly £300 per annum, if there be 
no renewals granted to the present tenants of their holdings. 
The previous Chancellors took fines, and renewed leases at a 
merely nominal rent.

the Rev. Edward Sampson, October the 9th, 1726. By an Act 
for the union and division of parishes, &c.^ the East Marsh, 
belonging to St. Mary, Shandon^ and Dunscomb's Marsh, in 
the parish of Christ Church, were, by the consent of the respec- 
tive Incumbents, made one entire parish, called the parish of

consanguineous in third and fourth degree. This dispensation 
or certificate was granted by Copinger, " non plus in feiyorem

Bernard Packington, a.m., resigned on 9th Nov., 1660, his 
yicarage of Cheswicke, in county of Middlesex, and diocese of 
London. [MS. Consistorial Office, Dublin.] In 1661 he was

Cork ; in 1663 V. Aglish, Eilbonane, and Moyiddy; in 1664 
V. Whitechurch, Cloyne, and in 1667 V. KilcuUy. He held 
all these livings (except Bruhenny) until his death in 1674. 

He married Rebecca Exham, and by her left issue two sons, 
William (Lieut, in the Army), and Bernard, besides a daughter, 
who married Lieut. Tbeophilus Carey, and bore to him Richard, 
Susannah, and Elisabeth Carey.

tion, snitable to the precepts of Christ and his holy Apostles.** 
He wishes to be bnried in St Peter's Church, '' within the 
rayle, in a tombe there, on the south side of the coinmuuion 
table." He gives £5 towards the enlarging of the quire and 
ohappell of St. Finbarries, and £5 towards hanging up the bells 
in the steeple now begun at St. fSnbarries. He gives also ten 
shillings worth of br^d to the prisoners in the north-cast of 
Cork, and ten shillings to those in the south-east of Cork. 

The Archdeacon died in May, 1674, and was buried at St. 
Peter's. His relict, Rebecca, makes her will, and dies in 1683. 
She mentions her nephews, John Exham, in Leighlinbridge, in 
the county of Catherlogh, gentleman, and Nathaniel Exham, his 
brother; also other nephews, John, of Charleville, and Joseph, 
of Cork, sons to her brother Henry, deceased. She was buried 
near her husband, in St. Peter's. 

The arms of Packington are, " part per chevron, in base three 
garbs, in chief three mullets (spur rowels), the crest a garb."

1674. May 27. Riohabd Syngb is admitted Archdeacon of Cork, 
and Vicar of Moviddy, Kilbonane, Aglish, Kilcullie, and Y. 
Whitechurch, in Cloyne diocese. [F.F.] 

Richard Synge, son of George, Bishop of Cloyne, was born 
in Dublin, in 1646, and was educated at Cloyne, by Mr. Goffe. 
He entered T.C.D. as Pensioner, on 9th June, 1662, being then 
sixteen y^rs old. He was nephew to Edward Synge, who 
was Bishop of Cork, Cloyne, and Ross 1663 to 1679. 

From 1669 to 1674 he was P. Kilbrogan, Cork, and R. Y. 
Aghinagh, Eilcoleman, and Agabulloge, in Cloyne. From 
1671 to 1674 he was also Chancellor of Ross. From 1674 to 
his death in 1688 he was Archdeacon of Cork, and Vicar of 
the five parishes mentioned above in his titles to the arch- 

He was, on 4th March, 1680, appointed to the commission 
of the peace for Cork county. 

He married Elisabeth, whom I suppose to have been Miss 
Elisabeth Clarke (relict of William O'Connor, esq.), who is 
mentioned in Burke's L. G., edition of 1840, vol. ii., p. 1346, 
as having been married in 1671 to Rev. Richard Synge— there 
said, erroneously (I think) to be a son of Bishop Edward Synge. 
Richard Synge, however, in his will (dated 1686) calls his wife 
Eliaabeth, the dear companion of his yoiUft, and leaves to her for 
her life his house and lands near Bridgnorth, county Salop, and 
his house, in Bandon, then leased to his brother George, P. 
Kilbrogan, q. v. After his wife's death he leaves the said pro- 
perty to his son Richard, to whom he leaves £30 per an. for 
his maintenance at College.

at Cork, althoni^h a literate, and who was, on 20th Maxch, 
1696, ordained Priest at Cork.

There are 4 rooms in it, sufficient for 8 people. There are now 
in it but 6, viz., 2 men and 4 women, who receive I2d. per week 
from the ohurohwardens of St. Peter's. Besides the weekly

new house% not far from the church, being the gift of Captain 
Bretridge, and also the interest of £40, at the rate of 8 per 
cent., charged by Mr. Browne, town clerk, on some houses on the
